World famous Reality TV star dies with beloved dog at his side in horror boating accident.

An accident on a boat killed a CAPTAIN who was on the National Geographic show Wicked Tuna.

Charlie Griffin was last seen on a boat with a friend in the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Sunday night.

At 11 p.m. on Sunday, the Coast Guard got a report that two boaters who had left Virginia Beach were late getting to Wanchese, North Carolina, where their boat needed repairs.

A Coast Guard spokesman told The Virginian-Pilot that they hadn’t been seen or heard from since 6:15 that night.

On Monday, the Coast Guard and local first responders found the boat that was just sitting there. They went inside and found Griffin and his dog’s bodies.

It was still Monday evening and the second person on the trip was still missing. Police are still looking for them.
