Coast Guard Call-Off Search for Missing Swimmer at the Jersey Shore [VIDEO]

Late last night, authorities identified a woman who disappeared while swimming in the waters off the Jersey Shore early Sunday.

Point Pleasant Beach police say 24-year-old Zuzana Oravcova, from Slovakia, was reported missing around 2:25 a.m. yesterday morning.

Oravoca was swimming with a male friend in the ocean when they both began to experience difficulty. The male friend was able to make it back to shore–Oravcoca was not.

Officials say the 23-year-old man, also from Slovakia, sought help once he made it to shore.

How to Avoid Rip Currents

Once the Coast Guard was notified about the disappearance, they flew from Air Station Atlantic city and launched a Lifeboat crew from Manasquan Inlet Station.

The search was called off a little before 10 p.m. Sunday night, once the Coast Guard located and identified the body.

The National Weather Service has issued a warning about dangerous rip currents along the Jersey Shore and shall remain in effect until Monday.

If you’re ever feeling concerns about going into the water, Forecasters and the NJ Coast Guard encourages you to speak to your local lifeguards with any questions!
