Investigators are looking for a man missing from Georgetown, said Carrie Cuthbertson, spokeswoman for the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
Keith Edward Sullivan, 45, has been living on a boat anchored in the Sampit River near the clock on Front Street in Georgetown.
Sullivan, from Emerald Isle, N.C., was last seen Jan. 12 about midnight on his boat and reported missing Wednesday. His boat, named “Saga,” remains anchored in Georgetown, Cuthbertson said.
Deputies are actively searching Winyah Bay and the surrounding areas using marine patrol units, side scan sonar and personnel.
Clothes similar to what Sullivan was wearing were found Thursday on Goat Island at the mouth of the Sampit River.
He is about 5’9” and weighs 160 pounds. Anyone with information about Sullivan’s whereabouts can call 546-5101 or text “GCSOTIP” followed by the message to 274637.
