The two men discovered in a submerged SUV in a Hollywood creek have been identified as the two men who had been reported missing earlier this week.

Charleston County Coroner Kimberley Rhoton confirmed the bodies inside the gold Ford Explorer pulled out of the Toogoodoo Creek on Friday are Otis Brown, 22, and 26-year-old Joshua Fenley, both of Adams Run.

Both men died of drowning and the autopsy revealed there is no evidence of foul play, according to Rhoton. Both men had been missing since May 28.

Family and friends stood and watched investigators pull out the SUV from the creek. Once they saw the vehicle, emotions ran high because they realized it was the car they were last seen driving.

The pair had been staying with relatives on America Street in Charleston, according to city police. They left the house on May 25, saying they were going to a wedding in Ravenel. They were later seen at a wedding reception in Rantowles and then at a party at Elijah’s Social Club on Yonges Island, according to police.
