MIAMI — The Coast Guard ended search and rescue attempts for a missing diver southeast of New Providence, Bahamas, Sunday afternoon.

The search was ended following a report from the Royal Bahamian Defense Force that the diver swam ashore in New Providence and no longer required Coast Guard assistance .

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Seventh District command center received a report from the Royal Bahamian Defense Force of two divers who were reported missing after their 21-foot pleasure craft became adrift and was towed back to port.

The first diver swam ashore earlier in the morning.

    I enjoy receiving news from today’s Coast Guard, and all they do to keep our Country safe. I also use the News Articles as Posts to the Group, “CG Sea Veterans of America” on the CG Channel Community. Lots of feedback from the members, too, regarding the Service. Some of the members are WW2 Veterans, and from every other conflict/war since. Hardly a single one has a negative comment to make about their tours of duty in the Coast Guard. Many, like myself, have expressed their disappointment of not staying in and making a career of the CG.

    Thanks, and keep up the good work.
