IMPERIAL BEACH (CNS) - The U.S. Coast Guard, lifeguards and police searched the sea and shoreline near the U.S.-Mexico line Wednesday afternoon for a teenage boy who reportedly disappeared during an ocean swim.

The youth, believed to be 16, was reported missing off the coast of Imperial Beach shortly before 2:30 p.m., the federal maritime agency reported.

The Coast Guard launched a 33-foot rescue boat, a 41-foot sea vessel and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to scan the coastline in the area for the missing teen. A San Diego police chopper also was involved in the effort.

The teen's name was not immediately available.
