Coroner: Body of missing fisherman recovered in Reevesville

REEVESVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

The body of a Reevesville man who disappeared during a fishing trip was recovered from the water on Tuesday, according to the Dorchester County Coroner's Office.

The body of Mitchell Syphertt, 55, was recovered in the waterway under the Harley Road bridge, according to Coroner Christopher Nisbet.

Syphertt was fishing with his cousin on Sunday, but the cousin decided to move further down a creek to fish, Nisbet said. When the cousin returned, he was unable to locate Syphertt.

Syphertt was officially reported missing on Tuesday, but on the same day, his body was recovered by Dorchester County deputies.

The cause of death will be determined by an autopsy, Nisbet said.
