Search resumes for swimmer missing off Dana Point

A search is underway for a 34-year-old swimmer who went missing off Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point where high surf and rough seas are reported.

The man went missing sometime around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, authorities said.

The search for the swimmer was called off around 10 p.m. but then resumed early Monday, though with reduced resources because of the Labor Day holiday.

Lifeguards said hazardous ocean conditions — pounding surf and fierce tides — are expected through  Monday because of Ileana, a storm off the southern tip of Baja California.

The National Weather Service says breakers from 3 to 5 feet, with sets as high as 7 feet could be seen at some beaches.
