Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Coast Guard is looking for an 18-year-old man who disappeared while taking off his gear after a dive off Folly Beach.

Authorities say the teen went for a 30-minte dive in 60-foot deep water with his father around 2 p.m. Saturday.

The Coast Guard says the teen had finished the dive and was trying to take off his weight belt when he slipped back under water and did not surface.

Helicopters and boats are being used to look for the teen. The Coast Guard did not release the diver's name.
