A search resumed this morning for a teenaged boy who went missing Sunday evening after he was swept away by a rip current, officials with the United States Coast Guard said.


Lifeguards were no longer on duty as the 14-year-old went swimming by a jetty near Ninth Street around 7 p.m. with a group of friends. All but the 14-year-old boy made it back to the shore after they were pulled out by the current, reports say.


The boy is from Philadelphia, several reports say, and was wearing white swim shorts.


NJ.com reports that the Coast Guard on Sunday had sent a 25-foot response boat and an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter to aid in the search. New Jersey State Police's Marine Unit, the Ocean City Fire Department and many Good Samaritans also helped to search for the boy.
