MIAMI - The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a missing 52-year-old Miami man who disappeared while jet skiing in the Florida Keys.

A Coast Guard news release said Carlos Garcia-Cruz didn't return Christmas Eve as expected.

Garcia-Cruz's girlfriend reported him missing on Christmas. She said he was last seen wearing a life jacket on a blue and white jet ski Saturday in Marathon.

Coast Guard Air Station Miami has an airplane searching from high above to try and find him.

There are certain details about the trip that search and rescuers do not know, which is why they said it’s important to file a float plan ahead of time either with them or with family with as many details as possible.
