Juveniles safe after Satilla excursion goes awry

Chris Buchanan

A boat ride down the Satilla turned into a perilous journey when four young boating enthusiasts lost their way on the Satilla, Sunday, but officials told the Enterprise Monday that they were found safely.

According to Investigator Craig Pittman with the Brantley County Sheriff’s Office said that the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the SO and the Brantley Emergency Management Agency were notified of the incident when one of the boat passengers phoned-in a distress call on the river late Sunday afternoon.

When emergency responders lost contact, the three groups joined together to search for the three female and one male passengers aboard the boat.
Pittman said the four were located just south of the river bridges near Atkinson and were safe.
