A woman drowned in the Intracoastal Waterway near Hampstead on Wednesday.
Amanda Perkins, 36, was reported missing after she took her paddle board out on a creek just off the Intracoastal Waterway, Pender County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jamie Ezzell said.
With the help of a neighbor’s boat, authorities found Perkins in the water. An autopsy performed Thursday determined Perkins’ cause of death was drowning.
