POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE, Calif. (AP) - Rescue crews are searching for a man who went missing while swimming in an estuary at a national seashore on the Northern California coast.

National Park Service spokesman John Dell’Osso says dive teams and water rescue specialists from Marin County as well as helicopters from the California Highway Patrol were assisting in the search effort Tuesday in Drakes Estero in the Point Reyes National Seashore.

The man vanished while trying to cross the mouth of Drakes Estero a day earlier.

Dell’Osso says the missing man’s three companions, however, made it across during Monday’s outing. Search efforts were suspended after about six hours due to dusk and resumed on Tuesday morning.

The missing man has not been identified, but Dell’Osso says he is in his early 20s.
