LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Four days after he was swept off rocks into the ocean at a Southern California beach, the active search for an 18-year-old Nevada man has been called off.

The Orange County Register (https://bit.ly/1AuA0Ap) reports Thursday that lifeguards will continue to look for Anthony Parnell, but they’ll now focus on the recovery of his body.

Parnell was last seen Sunday afternoon in the water off Laguna Beach, where he was exploring a cave-like outcropping with man-made saltwater pools.

He was on the rocks just south of Thousand Steps Beach when he was hit by high surf and washed away.

Parnell’s parents say he played football at Centennial High School in Las Vegas and recently signed up for the Army.
