Coast Guard Search Continues For Man Missing From Half Moon Bay Beach

HALF MOON BAY (CBS SF) — A search continued Sunday evening for a 22-year-old man who disappeared from a beach in Half Moon Bay near Pillar Point, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard sent out a helicopter from San Francisco at 2:48 p.m., Officer Mark Leahey said. A rescue boat crew also responded.

The man, who was wearing a black T-shirt and shorts, was reportedly playing football on Roosevelt Beach with friends who said they turned around and he was gone. There was no confirmation the man entered the water, Leahey said.

Along with the Coast Guard, the San Mateo Sheriff’s Office and the Pillar Point harbormaster were assisting with the search.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to contact the Coast Guard at (415) 399-3451.
