LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina authorities say they are searching for a man on Lake Murray after finding his 4-year-old daughter alone in a boat.

Department of Natural Resources spokesman Robert McCullough said someone on Panorama Point in Lexington County found the girl by herself in the boat around 7 p.m. Friday.

Authorities think the man fell from the boat less than an hour before the girl was found.

McCullough says crews are using boats and aircraft to look for the man and try to retrace the boat’s path to narrow down the search area for divers.

McCullough told media outlets the girl was safe with her mother. He did not identify the missing man.
