Fox Carolina reports that on Monday morning, Deputy Fire Marshall Evans said that the search had been called off late Sunday because of unsafe water conditions. The U.S. Coast Guard was called in to help.
“So far no one has been found and the Myrtle Beach Police Department is working to try and identify the potential victim that might have gone under,” Evans said. “With the storm coming in it has made search efforts very difficult and unsafe for our swimmers to get in the water safely so we may not have resolution on this matter for a while. “
