FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is searching the waters off Florida for a missing diver.

Authorities said they were looking for a diver who went missing about half-a-mile away from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

The Coast Guard in a release said it had received a report from a commercial dive vessel that a 50-year-old diver was missing after he failed to surface. The Coast Guard has launched both a boat crew and a helicopter crew to search for the missing diver.

State and local officials are assisting in the search.
