CENTRAL, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A man's body was found near a creek, after his truck was swept off the road on Tuesday night, according to the Pickens County Sheriff's Office.
The man did not return home on Wednesday, and his family reported him missing around 1 p.m. on Wednesday, according to deputies.
Wednesday night, the man's body was found near Silver Creek Road, which is near Six Mile and Central, deputies said.
Coroner Kandy Kelley identified the man as 23-year-old Logan Evans of Central. She said he was found away from his car, which was swept a mile down creek on his family's property.
The area was hit by heavy rains on Tuesday night and two other drivers were rescued in the same area overnight, deputies said. Sheriff Rick Clark believes the incident is related to flooding in the area.
Silver Creek Road runs between Maw Bridge Road and Highway 137. The private road has been closed, and only people who live in the area are being allowed in.
An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
