MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WCBD) – Several agencies are searching for a kayaker who went missing in Murrells Inlet over the weekend.
The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, and the United States Coast Guard are searching for 29-year-old Vladamir Norman, who was “reported overdue in his kayak” Sunday morning, in the surrounding waterways.
Deputies said the man was last contacted around 9:30 p.m. Saturday and said he was going fishing on the creekside.
Norman was seen in a green and blue kayak wearing a tie-dye shirt. But officials with the U.S. Coast Guard said late Sunday night a good Samaritan has located his kayak near Vandy’s Point.
Crews are expected to resume their search early Monday morning.
