Statesboro man missing after wakeboarding accident
Divers continue to search

Divers are searching for a Statesboro man who disappeared Sunday in the Savannah River after a suspected wakeboarding accident.

Donovan Warren Newsome, 25, and others were wakeboarding near Poor Robin Landing "when the lines apparently became tangled and they went down," said Capt. Robert McCullough with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

The accident took place around 4 p.m. Sunday. Divers continued to search Monday afternoon, he said.

The incident remains under investigation, he said.
