A boater who hit the waters in Beaufort County Sunday hasn't been seen since. Now the U.S. Coast Guard and Sheriff’s Department are among those searching for 71-year-old Lawrence Tate of Belhaven. Authorities say he went out on the Pungo River alone. Another boater reported seeing Tate's vessel floating in shallow water Monday morning between Woodstock and Wade Point in the Pungo River.
