A 27-year-old diver, Zachary Nelson, went missing on Saturday, January 29, off Pebble Beach, on California's Monterrey Peninsula, while diving from the shore with three friends. The water conditions were rough, and the group got caught in a rip current. Only three made it out of the water.

The U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, and several Monterey County search and rescue crews searched over 17 hours, covering 111 square miles with no sign of the missing diver. Rscue boats and rescue swimmers had a rough time getting out to the location, and the sheriff's dive team was unsuccessful in entering the water due to the water conditions. They flew a drone with infrared capabilities into the night.

The search was suspended on Monday, January 31.
