(AP) Officials are looking for two boaters missing off the South Carolina coast.

The Coast Guard says two people had launched a 14-foot boat on a fishing trip Saturday night at Edisto and had not returned.

The Coast Guard, the Department of Natural Resources and Charleston County officials are looking for 29-year-old Michael Royston and 33-year-old Amy Claytor.

The search has been concentrated around Steamboat Creek, the Dawho River and the North Edisto River.

A Coast Guard boat from Charleston and a helicopter from Savannah, Ga., were assisting in the search Sunday night.
