Patrol car on Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - As Tropical Storm Isaias approaches the Carolina coast, Myrtle Beach Deputy Fire Marshall Jonathan Evans said the search for a missing swimmer may not have a resolution for a while.

Horry County FD confirmed Sunday night they were assisting Myrtle Beach FD in the search for someone who possibly went missing in the water. 

On Monday morning, Evans said the search was called off late Sunday due to unsafe conditions and the Coast Guard was called in to help.

"So far no one has been found and the Myrtle Beach Police Department is working to try and identify the potential victim that might have gone under," Evans said.  "With the storm coming in it has made search efforts very difficult and unsafe for our swimmers to get in the water safely so we may not have resolution on this matter for a while.
