SC officials search for missing boater

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - The Natural Resources Department is still looking for a man missing in a Beaufort County creek.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reported that agency Capt. Robert McCullough said Sunday the search is continuing for 54-year-old Carl Mulligan.

McCullough says Mulligan was on a boat in Wimbee Creek when he disappeared in the water Wednesday. Witnesses said Mulligan was thrown from the boat when the steering wheel broke free from its column.

A friend on the boat was not hurt.
