GRAND ISLE, La. - The Coast Guard is searching for a diver missing 55 miles off Grand Isle.

Petty Officer Carlos Vega says the search began Saturday afternoon for 56-year-old Tim Raines, whose home town Vega does not know.

He says the boat "Early Life Crisis" was moored to an offshore rig and Raines reportedly was spearfishing nearby when an undertow washed him about 40 feet behind the boat. Raines reportedly went under while swimming toward the boat.

Vega says the crews of a helicopter and an airplane continued the search on Sunday.

He says the dive boat's manager is from Port Allen.
