Body of missing California swimmer found in ocean

Posted: Updated:

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have found the body of a man who disappeared during an early morning swim with friends in the Pacific Ocean.

The 21-year-old man was last seen alive around 4 a.m. Saturday.

The Redondo Beach Fire Department says lifeguards and emergency personnel found his body about six hours later. His name was not immediately released.

Waves in the area were larger than normal. The National Weather Service issued a high-surf advisory for much of the Los Angeles County coast due to Hurricane Norbert, which is churning north along the coast of Mexico.
