MONCKS CORNER — Divers are back in the water in Berkeley County looking for two people missing in separate mishaps in a canal south of Lake Moultrie.

Authorities say around 6 p.m. Saturday, someone jumped out of a boat and did not resurface in the Tailrace Canal near Moncks Corner.

While that search was ongoing, wildlife officials say a wreck between two boats was reported about 4 miles away around two hours later. One person remains missing from that incident.

Divers and emergency officials looked for the missing people for a while Saturday before coming back out to the water today.

The names of the missing people have not been released.
