Two boaters from Wassaw Island were found early Friday morning on the southern shore of Pine Island. Ronnie Hardin and Jonna Brianu, were rescued by a Coast Guard boat crew based out of Tybee Island.

News 3 first reported this story Thursday night after the Coast Guard in Charleston was notified by a family member of their disappearance. That family member told officials they had been contacted by one of the boaters to let them know their boat was taking on water due to the heavy rains.

Neither of the boaters had reported serious injuries.
