The body of a 58-year-old man from New York was dis­cov­ered along a Lady’s Is­land shore­line early Satur­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to the Beau­fort Po­lice Depart­ment.

Of­fi­cers were called out to the shore­line along Fac­tory Creek near Lady’s Is­land Dock­side restau­rant around 12:45 a.m. after the S.C. Depart­ment of Nat­u­ral Re­sources dis­cov­ered the body of Wade Lundo, ac­cord­ing to Capt. Dar­rell Gruel of the po­lice depart­ment and Deputy Beau­fort County Coro­ner David Ott.

Lundo lived on a sail­boat that was an­chored in Fac­tory Creek nearby. Ott said he had been an­chored in the area for around a year.

Lundo’s girl­friend told po­lice that she be­came con­cerned when he was not re­spond­ing to her mes­sages on his phone while she was at work and when he did not pick her up from work, Gruel said.

She even­tu­ally got a ride out to the boat where they both lived and dis­cov­ered he was not on board.

Gruel said po­lice do not sus­pect foul play at this time.

The cause and man­ner of Lundo’s death will be re­leased after an au­topsy, Ott said. The au­topsy will take place at the Med­i­cal Univer­sity of South Carolina in Charleston.
