U.S. Coast Guard crews launched a search for four missing divers off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, on Sunday, officials said.
The four men were reported missing after they went diving off a leisure boat called “Big Bill’s” about 63 miles east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina., around noon and never resurfaced, the Coast Guard said.
Coast Guard crews from sectors in Charleston, South Carolina, and Wilmington, North Carolina, deployed multiple boats and aircraft, including an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew and a HC-130 Hercules aircraft crew, to search for the missing divers about 50 miles south of Cape Fear. The area is near the state line between the two Carolinas.
Officials said the search for the four men would continue through the night on Sunday into Monday.
