The body of a 60-year-old Eutawville man reported missing on Sunday has been recovered.

Leroy Dantzler of 872 Miracle Dr. was found Monday. The official cause of death has not been established at this time, but an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, according to Orangeburg County Chief Deputy Coroner Sean D. Fogle.

“At 1:14 a.m., officers were notified of a male that was missing. He was last seen fishing from a pier on Prickett Drive, Eutawville on Sunday,” Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a release.

“Deputy sheriffs and family members searched all morning and located the body of a male on the bank of Lake Marion about 200 feet from the pier at 7:30 a.m.,” the release said.
