After two days, the body of the missing Conway teen, 16-year-old Troy Southern, was found washed ashore in Myrtle Beach on Tuesday morning. “Lifeguards found the body of the drowning victim between 9th Avenue and 11th Avenue North Ocean Boulevard, contacted the coroner’s office and the family of the young man and he’s being transported by the coroner’s office,” says Myrtle Beach Police Captain David Knipes.
Knipes says Southern’s body was found around 9:20 in the morning on Tuesday. The Sun News in Myrtle Beach reports Southern was swimming with a friend when he was heard calling for help around 1 p.m. on Sunday. The school Southern attended, Conway High School, held a moment of silence Wednesday.
