Coast Guard searchers for missing SC boat captain

Apr 30, 2010 6:46:00 AM - thestate.com
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.
