Body found in Waccamaw River in Horry County

A body was found around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday near Red Bluff Landing in Horry County in the Waccamaw River.

Horry County Fire Rescue crews are in the process of recovering the body.

There's no confirmation if it is the body of a man who went missing Friday afternoon at Red Bluff Landing.

That man, in his 30's, was sitting with a group of people along the river when he decided to go in for a swim around 3:30 p.m. last Friday.

A witness said the man went in, lost his footing, and went under. They never saw him come back up. Several people went in to search for him, but couldn't find him so they called 911.

The body has been removed from the water and the coroner is working to identify the person.

We have a crew at the landing and will bring you updates as we get them.
