Officials with the Newberry County Sheriff’s Department and the Department of Natural Resources on Saturday afternoon recovered the body of a missing boater on Lake Murray.
The boater, whose name has not been released by authorities, was reported missing late Friday near the Black’s Bridge area at S.C. 391.
According to DNR spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough, the man had dropped off his companion earlier in the evening and went back out on the water by himself. After he did not return, the woman who had accompanied him earlier reported him missing.
