MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The body of a Rock Hill man that was missing after he was last seen near the 29th Avenue South area of Myrtle Beach was found Friday morning, authorities said.
Police were investigating a missing swimmer who had not been seen since Tuesday night at the same location.
On Friday morning, officials with the Myrtle Beach State Park said crews found a body in the ocean and confirmed it is James Ross II, from Rock Hill, his parents said.
Witnesses said they heard a man screaming for help about 100 yards out in the ocean behind the resort Crown Reef.
A set of keys and a cellphone that belong to Ross, 33, were found on a towel on the beach, authorities said.
The mother told police her son is mentally unstable but has never tried to hurt himself or anyone else.
