Coast Guard searching for missing swimmer off of Bratenahl

BRATENAHL, Ohio - The Cleveland Coast Guard Station is searching for a missing swimmer off the coast of Bratenahl this Monday evening.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Christopher Yaw tells Fox 8 that a 911 call came in to the police at around 7:40 p.m. A woman reported that her father had been swimming off a boat when a wave hit him. After it passed, he did not surface.

Bratenahl police say they were initially called out to the Shoreby Club. Crews from the Cleveland Fire Department were also assisting in the search.

There is a boat in the water searching, and the Coast Guard is planning on sending up a helicopter if the weather allows it.

This is a developing story. Fox 8 and Fox8.com will have updates as they become available.
