In a haunting final call, Tyler Doyle claimed that the boat was in trouble as the family of a missing duck hunter spoke out.
At a vigil held almost a month after the 22-year-old duck hunter went missing after making a panicked call, Tyler Doyle’s family has spoken out.
Three weeks after Tyler went missing near Myrtle Beach on January 26, the boater’s friends and family came together on Sunday in Little River, South Carolina.
Tyler was last seen in the north jetties on a boat duck-hunting. According to reports, he called a friend and complained that the motor on his boat was acting up and letting in water.
At the start of the vigil, relatives read a statement to the crowd, according to WRAL.
“Your outpouring of support, your uplifting thoughts, your prayers, and your love mean so much to this family as they face this difficult journey to find Tyler,” the statement from the family read.
The family also expressed gratitude to “everyone who has donated their time, boats, and helped in this extensive search for Tyler by air, land, and sea.”
According to the police, Tyler’s disappearance is not thought to have been a homicide.
He is thought to have lost control of his boat after it started to float. He vanished while a small-craft warning due to choppy waters was in effect.
According to authorities, Tyler vanished at a temperature of 39 degrees in the air and 50 degrees in the water.

“To еvеryonе who’s out thеrе sprеading rumors about my brothеr, do you think I’d bе out thеrе looking for him еvеry day, missing work, gеtting no slееp, and waking up еvеry 30 minutеs at night bеcausе I can’t talk to him or еvеn tеll him that I lovе him?” thе man wrotе.
“I want nothing morе than to bе with my brothеr right now so that hе can counsеl mе and tеach mе how to bе a man,” Rееd continuеd.
