The search for a paddleboarder reported missing off the Isle of Palms Friday afternoon was suspended about 8 p.m. because of worsening weather conditions, according to the Coast Guard.

Somebody on a paddleboard was reported to be in trouble shortly before 3 p.m. The Coast Guard sent a helicopter and boat to assist local rescue crews.

It's not certain if the person was still in the water, although authorities had not been alerted that the person had made it to shore.
