Ellabell Fisherman Found Dead
Coast Guard officials on Tuesday
found the body of an Ellabell fisherman
missing since Saturday.
Daniel M. Cox Sr.'s body was discovered
by a Coast Guard helicopter,
about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday floating in
a marshy area near Sapelo Sound,
Coast Guard spokesman Steve Adkins
It was not immediately known if
officials suspected foul play or how
long Cox, 47, had been dead, Adkins
said. An autopsy was pending and
the death is under investigation, he
The Coast Guard had searched
for Cox since Monday evening when
his daughter reported him missing.
Adkins said Tuesday.

Lizzy Cox said her father had
gone fishing near Shellman Bluff in
Mclntosh County on Saturday and
expected to return Monday. The
search for Cox and his 14-foot vessel
began Monday evening in the area
surrounding Sapelo Sound.
But heavy rain, winds and low
visibility hampered the search Monday
night and Tuesday morning, Adkins
said. Weather grounded a helicopter
from the Coast Guard Air
Station Savannah.
The Coast Guard began searching
again Tuesday morning and located
Cox's body that afternoon in a
marshy area near Little Mud River
in Mclntosh County, he said
Cox's boat was found floating
nearby. Adkins said He was uncertain
if the vessel had been damaged.
