Maui firefighters are continuing to search for a missing swimmer reportedly swept away by rough waves off Kapalua.

The search continues for a third day after the 42-year-old man from California was reported to have been washed out to sea after jumping into the ocean from rocks in the “Cliffhouse” area. The search started at first light today and will continue until nightfall.

The Maui Fire Department first responded to an emergency call for the missing swimmer at 3:38 p.m. Monday. Ocean conditions were very rough at the time, authorities said.

Crews conducted searches by air and along the shoreline, while rescue swimmers searched the water. Scuba divers joined search efforts on Tuesday.

The search was suspended overnight Monday and Tuesday due to darkness. MFD said the search would resume at daybreak Thursday if the swimmer is still missing.

The U.S. Coast Guard is assisting with search efforts.
