Two Boaters Found Dead in Adam's Creek Area

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.
