FRISCO, N.C. (AP) - The Coast Guard is searching for a man reported missing off the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

The Coast Guard said in a news release that it was alerted about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday that an 18-year-old man was seen falling off a boogie board and did not resurface.

The man was in the water at Frisco Beach near Hatteras.

The Coast Guard says the man was not wearing a flotation device. His name has not been released.
