SC, Georgia authorities search for missing boater

A search is underway for a man who is missing in Lake Hartwell.

Authorities were called to the lake around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday after a couple was reportedly thrown from their boat into the water during a storm.

No names have been released, but the woman who was thrown from the boat was rescued by another boater. Her husband is still missing. The boat, however, has been recovered. It ran aground on the Georgia side in Hart County.

Investigators with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office were on the scene along with dive teams from Georgia and South Carolina.

The search is taking place in the Singing Pines area near the dam.
