Tyler Doyle was reported missing on Thursday, January 26, 2023, after his duck hunting boat sank in South Carolina’s Little River after taking on water. Tyler Doyle’s wife, Lakelyn Doyle, posted on Facebook nearly a week after authorities searched the area for the missing person that some of her husband’s belongings had been recovered two miles east of Ocean Isle Beach.
The items included the missing person’s wallet, which contained his driver’s licence, and waders, which were discovered floating in the water. Waders are waterproof garments worn over regular clothing to keep people dry. Waders are most commonly used during hunting and fishing because they allow people to wade through water without getting wet. Waders are made of vulcanised rubber, a durable material that protects people from the elements.
“Don’t give up on my ty,” Tyler Doyle’s wife begs as she updates the search for her husband.
Tyler Doyle’s wife provided the most recent update on her missing husband, who went missing while duck hunting on a boat near Little River, South Carolina, on January 31, 2023. Lakelyn Doyle, Doyle’s wife, begged people to continue their search in a Facebook post after discovering her husband’s driver’s licence and waders floating two miles east of Ocean Isle Beach. In a plea to keep looking for her missing husband, she said:
Tyler’s belongings were discovered two miles east of Ocean Isle Beach. IF ANYONE NEAR OCEAN ISLE OR HOLDEN BEACH OR FURTHER NORTH IS ABLE TO BRING OUT OFFSHORE BOATS OR WALK THE BEACH INLAND.
In another post, while sharing the location from where the items were found, Lakelyn Doyle asked anyone with offshore boats in the area to help with the search.
“The green point is the location of waders found. So if anyone has an offshore boat and is willing to help find Tyler, this is the area that needs to be searched.”
Several agencies, including Horry County and North Myrtle Beach officials, have been assisting in the search for Tyler Doyle, who was last seen wearing a camo jacket and khaki pants. Tyler’s family has been working tirelessly with volunteers to find him while the United States Coast Guard Southeast suspended their active search after 45 hours on January 28.
As the search for the missing man from Loris, South Carolina, continues, a GoFundMe account has been set up to assist his wife, who is expecting their first child, with expenses during this difficult time.
