The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit this morning continued the search for a snorkeler who disappeared Sunday evening off the Destin east jetty.

Friends say the 28-year old tourist was with a group of snorkelers when they noticed he was missing during a head count around 6:30 p.m.

The OCSO Dive Team searched for the man but had to call it off due to unsafe conditions. The search will continue this morning, according to OCSO.
