Coast Guard searches Lake Erie for missing swimmer

SANDUSKY - Coast Guard vessels and a helicopter searched Lake Erie about two miles north of Cedar Point last night for a man who jumped into the water for a swim, but didn't surface.

Authorities said the man, 40, was aboard a 30-foot Cruisers Inc. boat with three other people about 7:40 p.m. when he went in the water. The man's name and hometown weren't available. The boat is from Vermilion, Ohio, authorities said.

Eight Coast Guard vessels and the helicopter were still looking for the man at 9:45 p.m.
