Swimmer who vanished during overnight swim in Pacific Beach found safe


Lifeguards say a swimmer who disappeared early Saturday in Pacific Beach has been found safe.

San Diego Lifeguards say four friends went into the ocean around 1:30 a.m. across from the Ocean Blvd. and Garnet Ave. beach entrance. But one of the friends did not return, prompting searches throughout the morning by U.S. Coast Guard and lifeguard crews.

Later Saturday, the missing person was located safe at a friend’s house, the Coast Guard told 10News.

The swimmer was reportedly celebrating his 21st birthday at the nearby Waterbar before the group went for a swim, according to San Diego Lifeguard Lieutenant Rich Stropky.
