    South Carolina Teen, 19, Goes Missing After Boat Crash: 'We Are Praying That We Find Her Alive'

    A 19-year-old woman from South Carolina has been missing since 2 a.m. on Sunday after a boat she was on crashed into a bridge in Beaufort County, numerous outlets report.

    Mallory Beach, the youngest of three sisters, according to the Island Packet, is a former student at the University of South Carolina. As of Sunday, 20 of her closest friends and family have been awaiting updates on her whereabouts.

    According to Capt. Robert Mcullough, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources stopped the search when it became dark, but he said that they would start again Monday morning at 8 a.m., the outlet reports.

    DNR is the lead investigating agency in the crash and did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

    Their spokesman, David Lucas, told Island Packet that it’s “an all-hands-on-deck situation.”

    “She’s always happy. Everybody loves her, loves being around her,” her sister Savannah Tuten told the newspaper. “We are still hoping and praying that we find her alive.”

    Five others were injured in the crash so she wasn’t alone. I’m hopeful she will be found but if the others were rescued, I’m very worried for her.

    A boat crash at 2 a.m. usually indicates high speed and alcohol. I can't say at that age I did things any wiser. But as a Mom, I do hope she is found or at least she died on impact and can be brought home for closure with her family.

    This article has more details about the crash from the missing girl's boyfriend Anthony Cook, who was on the boat, and a small update on search progress.

    Missing teen’s boyfriend shares details of Beaufort County boat crash as search continues

    A few quotes in particular of note:

    They were driving the boat home from a social gathering at 2 a.m. Was alcohol involved? Even more interesting, what was the "dispute" about "who should be driving" the boat? Speculation: maybe the driver had been drinking, and one or more of the other passengers thought he or she was driving unsafely.

    Mallory Beach wasn't wearing her life jacket... sad and just so avoidable.

    I really feel bad for this kid, he tried his best to save his girlfriend, but there was nothing else he could have done. The other five people on the boat survived with injuries.

    Reading this, it seems likely that Mallory Beach was knocked unconscious from the impact, and then was swept down the river while not wearing a life jacket. Poor girl.

    It's been almost 48 hours since Mallory went missing. What goes into the authorities' decision as to when to call it a recovery operation?

    Recent update here:

    Was alcohol a factor in Beaufort Co. boating accident? Officials are investigating

    Not much new on the search for Mallory, but the search crew has transitioned to a recovery effort:
    Some more information on the investigation into the circumstances of the crash:
    Some of Mallory's friends are saying on social media that (speculation) authorities have given very little information to date to protect the potential driver of the boat, whose parents may be well-connected through either money or rank at the nearby Marine Corps base on Parris Island (/speculation). In any event, they seem understandably upset and frustrated.

    Hopefully more information comes out soon.
