CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Coast Guard ended its search Friday after the missing boater was recovered in Charleston Harbor.

Recovered was Terrance Singleton from North Charleston, S.C.

Forty-two search and rescue assets searched more than 1,636 square miles for over 36 hours.

“While the response was immediate and involved multiple federal, state and local agencies, we were ultimately unable to rescue Mr. Singleton,” said Capt. John Reed, Commander of Coast Guard Sector Charleston. “As search and rescue professionals, we want every search to have a positive outcome.
