A couple reported missing Saturday morning has been found safe, the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office said Thursday afternoon.


Theresa Michelle Haley, 31, and Rocky Lane Hewett II, 38, walked from 2780 Pond Way in Shallotte just after midnight Saturday and were seen about an hour later walking together on Shell Point Road.

The sheriff's office didn't say where or when exactly they were found.

In another case, a man who was reported missing after he walked out of Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center wearing only his underwear was found dead Easter Sunday.

No foul play is suspected, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Emily Flax said.

Jeremy Faith Hill, 30, was last seen at the hospital in Bolivia about 1 p.m. April 11.

His body was discovered in a creek in the woods off N.C. 211 in Supply about 6:30 p.m., Flax said.
