The Kauai Fire Department resumed its aerial search Sunday for the second of two California visitors swept out to sea Friday while exploring the rocky coast south of Kalihi­wai Bay.

But there was no sign of 47-year-old Brian Baker, and the search likely will resume Monday morning, county officials said.

Sunday’s helicopter search area focused on the stretch of coast from Anini Beach to Lepeuli (Larson’s) Beach, the county said.  Fire officials also searched for the body from vantage points on the northern coastline of Kauai until about 5 p.m.

The body of another victim in the same incident, 46-year-old Adam Griffiths, was recovered  Saturday morning.  Both men were from San Francisco.

The county closed all North Shore beaches again today because of high surf.
