Missing is a 24-year-old man, last seen wearing a white shirt and white shorts.

Crewmembers from Coast Guard Station Golden Gate were unable to reach the swimmer, so San Francisco Fire Department sent a rescue swimmer and operator aboard a jet ski to assist the distressed swimmer and transfer him to the Coast Guard boat.

Watchstanders in the Sector North Carolina Command Center in Wilmington received notice around 8 a.m. that a 33-foot pleasure craft was taking on water with five people aboard about 15 miles southeast of Carolina Beach.

The Coast Guard is searching for a swimmer who went missing Saturday afternoon off Matagorda Beach a quarter mile east of the Colorado River.

Neither the Coast Guard, nor the Portland Fire Department believe there is anyone missing at this time. "But we are always prepared to respond to emergency situations on the water".

"Float plans are easy to create with the Coast Guard mobile app and share with a friend or family member who is staying ashore", said Mike Baron, the recreational boating safety specialist for the Ninth Coast Guard District.
