CHARLESTON S.C. (WCBD) – The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is currently searching off the coast of Charleston for a 31-foot vessel – the Carol Anne — that went missing off of Brunswick Georgia on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Three boaters are reported to be on the vessel, according to the USCG: Dalton Conway, Caleb Wilkinson and Tyler Barlow.
The vessel was supposed to port Tuesday or Wednesday to meet their shipment, but never showed up. The owner of the boat contacted USCG Sector Charleston on Friday to report the missing vessel. The owner said the last communication with the vessel was six days ago.
Tania Flowers, family to one of the boaters, says the boat could have drifted up to the Charleston coast.
A good Samaritan reported seeing “a vessel matching the description of the Carol Ann on Wednesday,” according to the USCG.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Sector Charleston at 843-740-7050.
