Coast Guard Searches Near Atlantic City's Steel Pier for Missing Swimmer

The search for a swimmer who went missing off the iconic Steel Pier in Atlantic City continued Wednesday morning.

The 31-year-old man went into the water around 8:15 p.m. while under the Steel Pier with a woman. That woman later told Atlantic City officers that the man went into the water but she didn't see him come out.

The U.S. Coast Guard used a 29-foot Response Boat with a small crew based out of Atlantic City and a rescue helicopter in the initial search, the agency said.

An 87-foot patrol boat based out of Cape May then searched for the missing swimmer through the night.

New Jersey troopers, Atlantic City officers and beach patrol also assisted in the search, police said
