Authorities still searching for missing Beaufort Co. boater
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The Natural Resources Department is still looking for a man missing in a Beaufort County creek.
DNR Capt. Robert McCullough said Sunday the search is continuing for 54-year-old Carl Mulligan.
McCullough says Mulligan was on a boat in Wimbee Creek when he disappeared in the water Wednesday. Witnesses said Mulligan was thrown from the boat when the steering wheel broke free from its column.
A friend on the boat was not hurt.
