Search continues for missing swimmer
The search continued Sunday morning for a Massapequa man who disappeared Saturday afternoon in waters off Jones Beach after he went for an ocean swim.
Lt. Tony Astacio of the New York State Park Police said authorities searched into the wee hours of Sunday morning, then began again early Sunday in the hopes of locating Raymond Roth, 47, who went missing after swimming in an area unprotected by lifeguards.
"Hopefully this thing turns out fine," Astacio said.
The search for Roth began at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday where he was last seen, east of Field 6, police said.
His wife and son, who reported him missing, said Roth was a very good swimmer who frequented Jones Beach.
