Authorities are searching for a 55-year-old North Carolina man whose boat washed ashore near Myrtle Beach.
Coast Guard Lt. Commander Ryan Rhodes said Friday that Thomas "Andy" Richmond of Ocean Isle Beach, N.C., left Shallotte Inlet sometime Thursday in his 28-foot boat named "Heads or Tails." The boat was found on the beach about 30 miles away with its engines running at 11:20 p.m. Thursday.
Rhodes said Richmond was alone when he left, and he frequently takes the boat out to fish all day.
The state Department of Natural Resources and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division are assisting the Coast Guard in the search. Anyone with information on Richmond is asked to call the Coast Guard command center in Charleston at 843-740-7050.
