Almost a year after duck hunter Tyler Doyle of Loris, SC went missing during a duck hunt, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division has joined the investigation.
Doyle went missing on Jan. 26, 2023 in his hunting boat after dropping a friend off for the hunt. His friend reportedly watched Doyle’s boat sinking and called 911 as the boat disappeared around some rocks. Doyle was not seen again.
An extensive investigation involving numerous agencies lasted several days. SCDNR reported that no foul play was suspected, and ruled the incident a hunting accident. But since then, numerous sightings of Doyle have been called in to authorities.
SCDNR spokesperson Stephen Fastenau said DNR remains the lead agency on the case. But he said because of numerous reported possible sightings of Doyle, they have asked SLED to review the file and to assist with missing person inquiries.
