While searching for a man who has been missing for almost two months, Georgetown Police say they found skeletal remains
GEORGETOWN, S.C. – Georgetown Police said they discovered skeleton remains while hunting for a man who has been missing for about two months.
Police and the Community United Effort, often known as CUE, were on the second day of a renewed search for 31-year-old Joseph Wesley Blake. On July 29, he was last spotted strolling in a wooded area near Ridge Street.
The remains were discovered in a dense location that required the use of Utility Terrain Vehicles to access. One of the UTV drivers observed bones buried in foliage.
The site is being processed by investigators, and the Georgetown County Coroner has been called. The coroner will identify the remains of the deceased.
The probe is still active.
If you see Blake or know where he may be, please contact the Georgetown Police Department at (843) 545-4300.
