Teens Found Safe at Lake
After a long cold night, the missing teenagers at Lake Waccamaw turned up safe early Monday morning. Officials said the two teenagers were reported missing Sunday evening at Lake Waccamaw.
The Columbus County Sheriff’s Office said the juveniles were last seen at the dam at Lake Waccamaw around 6:30 to 7 p.m.
Ground, water and air search teams combed through the area throughout the night. The pair eventually walked up behind a home and asked for help. They had reportedly gotten off a trail and become disoriented. Neither was injured, but both were treated for hypothermia.
