The U.S. Coast Guard is searching Monday morning for a 50-year-old man who was tossed into the water near the north jetty entrance to Mission Bay when his 20-foot sailboat was hit by a rogue wave shortly after midnight.

A second person aboard the sailboat when it capsized was able to reach land, officials said.

A Coast Guard helicopter and rescue boat, plus personnel from the San Diego Fire Department, are involved in the search.
