A helicopter team from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City is assisting in efforts to locate a 65-year-old diver who disappeared today approximately 35 miles south of Beaufort Inlet.

A crew aboard the dive boat Glen Ellen contacted the Coast Guard at approximately 1:15 p.m. saying the diver was separated from his partner and had been missing for more than a hour.

The team of the cutter Kodiak Island and a team, including with five local divers, were dispatched on a Coast Guard motor boat from Station Fort Macon Inlet.

Beaufort is in Carteret County and is southeast of New Bern.
