    Michael Dwyer, a resident of Brisbane, has been reported missing.

    San Mateo County sheriff's officials continued a search Tuesday for a man who was last seen Monday entering the water at a Half Moon Bay beach

    Around 1:30 p.m. Monday, a witness reported seeing a man entering the water near Dunes Beach located on Young Avenue, according to the sheriff's office.

    The witness reported that the person had been swept out to sea by ocean currents and never came out of the water, sheriff's spokesman Sal Zuno said.

    The report prompted an extensive air and sea search involving a helicopter, two lifeboats and various law enforcement units. The search continued until about 7 p.m., according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
