PONCE DE DEON INLET, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for missing diver off Ponce de Leon Inlet in central Florida.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the 28-year-old diver went into the water with about 30 minutes of oxygen Monday morning. When he didn't resurface, the crew of the fishing vessel Yellowfin reported him missing to the Coast Guard in Jacksonville.
A crew that was training nearby began looking for him. On the way to the site, they spotted an overturned kayak. So, the search extended to a missing diver and kayaker.
The search for the kayaker was called off Monday night, but crews continued their search for the missing diver. Officials say there is no report of an overdue kayaker.
Boaters in the area were asked to watch for the missing diver.
