More than 100 beachgoers linked arms to form a human chain after a lifeguard reported a missing child in the ocean near 75th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach on Monday, July 24, 2017. The search consisted of Myrtle Beach Ocean Rescue crews, jet skis, a drone and calls to passing banner planes. After 40 minutes the search was suspended. Lt. Jonathan Evans of the Myrtle Beach Fire Department said no one was reported missing. He said a lifeguard saw a group get knocked over by a wave and thought one of the people in the group was not there when the people walked from the ocean. Evans said the group had dispersed and no one reported a missing person.
