Coast Guard crews are searching for a fisherman missing just off the South Carolina coast.
Officials say a crew member on the fishing vessel Lady Die woke up just before 7 p.m. Thursday and found the captain was missing.
Crews used boats and a helicopter to search throughout the night near Murrells Inlet for Mark Shackleford. Searchers found the boat and towed it to shore, but Shackleford is still missing.
The Coast Guard says a rescue helicopter based in Charleston and two small boats from Georgetown are taking part in the search.
Two cutters from Charleston and Mayport, Fla., are also assisting.
