HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- Beaufort County sheriff's deputies say a man's body has been found on Hilton Head Island.

Deputies say it appears the man found shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday had drowned.

Coroner Ed Allen said the man was 33-year-old Derek Oliver Griner of Hampton.

Deputies say Griner's body was found shortly before a female acquaintance called to report he failed to return from a swim.

Investigators say there is no sign of foul play.

Allen says an autopsy is planned Monday at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
