Search for missing swimmer called off in West Haven

New Haven

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– The search for the reported missing swimmer in West Haven has been called off, according to officials.

West Haven police tell News 8 the search has been called off due to the fact that there are no reports of a missing person, abandoned vehicle, or any indication to lead to belief there is a missing person in the water.

Emergency responders were sent out to the area of Dawson Avenue Beach Sunday afternoon on the report of the missing swimmer after lifeguards apparently noticed a swimmer about 600-800 feet off shore, which they then lost sight of the swimmer.

Crews searched 42 square miles before officially calling off the search at 10 PM.
