MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WCIV) -- Georgetown County deputies are hoping the public can help them find a man who was exposing himself to people at Huntington Beach State Park.

According to the sheriff's office, the suspect exposed himself to two young girls around 4 p.m. Tuesday while they were playing in the water. Deputies say a relative of the girls alerted bystanders, a witness followed the man who left the park on Ocean Highway.

Deputies say the witness gave them a license plate number they traced back to Patrick M. Krell, of Charleston. GCSO officials released photos of the suspect's van Thursday.

Krell is described as a white man just under 6 feet tall, about 170 pounds with blue eyes. Deputies say he was driving a greenish-blue GMC van with Georgia license plate BXD-1908.

Anyone with information on Krell's location is asked to call the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office at 843-546-5101.
