On Monday, February 18, at around 7:45 PM, a missing male was reported in the water on a body board with a wetsuit. Initial Fire and Police units responded to the reported location and began a land-based search with multiple units scanning the water for the reported subject with handheld thermal cameras and binoculars.

The search was suspended from the land at approximately 12:30 AM. The Coast Guard assumed the water based operations from Coast Guard Tybee, and boat and helicopter operations continued throughout the night.

As of Tuesday morning, February 19, the Coast Guard is active with multiple boats and air support operating in rough conditions. We resumed land-based beach, crossover, and accessible beach points inspections and will continue throughout the day.
