REEVESVILLE (AP) — Authorities have recovered the body of a Dorchester County man thought to have drowned over the weekend.


The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that the body of 55-year-old Mitchell Syphertt was found on Tuesday.


County Coroner Chris Nisbet said the man died beneath a bridge on Harley Road in the county.


Nisbet said the victim was fishing with a cousin on Sunday. The pair separated for a time as the cousin walked farther down the creek. When the cousin returned, Syphertt was gone.


An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.
