JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Authorities called to the scene of a motorcycle spotted in the marsh near the James Island Connector say they have spoken with its owner, ruling out the possibility of a missing person.
Responders with the Charleston Police Department, the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, Charleston Fire Department and EMS were dispatched to the area at 9:17 a.m. after someone reported seeing a motorcycle near the Connector and Harbor View Road.
