Search Continues for Two Missing Swimmers at the Jersey Shore

The Coast Guard and other authorities have resumed searches for two swimmers that went missing from Seaside Park and Asbury Park respectively. An 18-year-old man went missing from Seaside Park in the early evening Wednesday after lifeguards had gone home for the night. A 23-year-old man went missing from Asbury Park—lifeguards there begin their season today. Rips currents down the Shore have been dangerously strong, especially for this early in the season.
