The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a missing swimmer off the coast of Atlantic City this morning.

A witness told police a man disappeared while swimming near Steel Pier around 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

The Coast Guard used a 29-foot Response Boat with a small crew based out of Atlantic City and a rescue helicopter in the initial search, the agency said.

Although thick fog and low visibility is hampering search efforts, a Coast Guard cutter will remain at the scene looking for the victim, Mervar said.

No word on why the man was in the water after dark.

There have been several other similar incidents this summer.

She was swept away while swimming with a male companion in rough surf off Point Pleasant Beach.
