    SC - Berkeley County - Human remains, 18 Jan 2012 - Joe Swinton

    A man searching a wooded area for aluminum cans last week instead found quite a surprise – a skull and human remains.

    The remains were found next to Rediversion Canal near Platt Road in St. Stephen at about 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 18, according to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury.
    The body could possibly belong to a missing man last seen Jan. 17, 2010, Salisbury said. The man was reported missing Jan. 19, 2010 and his truck was found on Platt Road on Jan. 22, 2010, according to Salisbury.

    The truck cab was filled with about a foot of water because the area had been flooded at the time. “That area floods when they spill water from the Santee Dam,” Salisbury said.

    After extensive searches in 2010 – including the use of helicopters and cadaver dogs – authorities were unable to find the missing man, Salisbury said. “We never found anything. All of it is swamp.
