On Thursday evening at around 7 p.m., New London Police received a 911 call from someone who said they saw a person enter the water near Ocean Beach Park and not resurface.
This lead to Sector Long Island Sound issuing an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and launching a Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod and a 45-foot Response Boat from the Coast Guard Station in New London.
Officers and lifeguards searched the beach using spotlights. A commercial fishing vessel also helped search. However, no one has been found.
The Coast Guard reminds people to be vigilant and if you see a swimmer in trouble, call 911.
