Firefighters began looking for the free diver around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Coast Guard, Honolulu Ocean Safety and Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting assisted in the search.
The diver’s friend reported the man missing after the two were diving off Honolulu airport’s reef runway and became separated.

The Coast Guard said there were 5 mph winds and seas up to one foot in the area.
