Two boaters have been found dead in the Adam's Creek area near South River in Carteret County. Officials say their boat sank at that location sometime this week.
Seventeen-year-old Sam Puleo was found Thursday, and 55-year-old Jim Surface was found Friday in the water by Coast Guard helicopters.
Deputies say the two men had picked up a new boat in Edenton and were taking it to Florida. Authorities believe the boat may have had problems.
