Authorities on Sunday were still combing portions of the Stono River near the Limehouse Landing on Johns Island in search of a missing teenager.

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources is leading the search efforts for the yet-to-be-identified 17-year-old male who went overboard while on a boat Saturday evening, DNR spokesman Capt. Robert McCullough said.  Authorities were called to the area around 8 p.m.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office said in a tweet on Saturday that the landing would be closed until further notice while crews continue search efforts. The sheriff's office assisted in the search.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, McCullough also said that the body of a commercial fisherman was recovered shortly before noon Sunday from the Cooper River. The man had been crabbing when he went overboard near Bushy Park Landing in Goose Creek and had been unaccounted for since Saturday night.

The man was identified as Van Ho, 37, of North Charleston, according to the Berkeley County Coroner's Office. A Coast Guard helicopter spotted Ho's boat in the marsh Saturday afternoon, authorities said, and another fisherman discovered Ho's body Sunday morning. 

Berkeley Coroner Bill Salisbury said that Ho's death was ruled an accidental drowning.
