Missing Tyler Doyle’s brother is spreading rumors online as the 23-year-old hunter remains missing 12 days after falling from boat
THE brother of a 23-year-old man who disappeared from his boat during a duck hunt has taken to social media with an urgent plea.
Tyler Doyle’s younger brother, Reed Doyle, asked his followers to squash rumors surrounding his brother’s disappearance as he provided an update on the frantic search in South Carolina.
Tyler, a husband and father with a second child on the way, has been missing since January 26.
According to reports from Fox News, the young man fell overboard in rough water while a friend watched from a nearby jetty on the Little River Coast.
The search for Tyler spanned multiple law enforcement and public safety agencies, crossing state lines of land, air and sea.
According to ABC 15, the North Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad announced they decided yesterday to call off their search.
“It is with a heavy heart that we are currently suspending daily searches,” a representative said. “Our crews are exhausted and need to return to their families and jobs.”
However, according to his younger brother Reed, the search continues.
In a devastating video posted to his TikTok, Reed asked for community support.
“Tyler Doyle was my brother,” he said. “We’ve been out here for 10 days searching, everyone is searching, you know, and we’re trying to figure everything out.”
The heartbroken brother addressed some of the rumors that have been circulating online since Tyler’s disappearance.
“People out here who are keyboard warriors and want to talk on Facebook or TikTok and just want to piece things together the way they see it, know you’re not helping it,” he warned.
He reminded his followers that this tragedy hurts no one more than his family and loved ones before going through the facts as he knows them.
According to Reed, Tyler and a friend were duck hunting when he was dropped on Jetty Rock.
“The waves were rising and it’s changing very quickly out there and the stern of the boat was picking up water,” Reed explained. “Waves took over the back of the boat and took Tyler with it.”
“I know the truth and take it as you will, my brother is not a villain, my brothers are nothing, not a criminal. He’s the most honest, kind person you will ever meet,” Reed said.
He asked for the misinformation to stop as online gossip has begun to take a toll on the Doyle family.
Reed also wanted to thank those who drew attention to Tyler’s disappearance and helped find him, bringing him home.
“The people who are helping, I want to say thank you for everything and for helping us to keep looking and finding him and bringing him home to his wife and niece.”
According to online updates, the family believe they have found some of Tyler’s belongings, including decoy ducks, his wallet with money and a South Carolina driver’s license.
As the physical search for Tyler continues, various theories about the young father’s disappearance continue to swirl around social media.
