BEAUFORT The body of a missing 31-year-old Allendale man who disappeared Saturday while swimming off Hunting Island was found Monday morning.
The body of Joseph Scott was discovered at about 5:30 a.m. by members of the S.C. State Park Service. Scott was swimming about 200 yards offshore with friends Saturday afternoon when he went under water and did not resurface.
Members of Scotts family told authorities he was a capable swimmer.
Scott likely was pulled under by a strong rip current, according to the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. Five other people had to be saved earlier Saturday at Hunting Island.
