A body found Friday in the Ashley River was confirmed to be that of a boater missing since last week.

Preston Guyse, 26, died from head trauma, the Charleston County Coroner's Office said.

Guyse reportedly launched his boat for a test run Sunday morning in the vicinity of Duncan's Boat Harbor and Landing.

The boat tilted, causing him to fall into the water, and a witness reported that the boat circled in the water and may have struck Guyse.

Rescuers had been searching the river for days.
