This morning the search for a missing teenager is now being called a recovery operation.

It all started yesterday afternoon just before four. That’s when two teens lost sight of one of their friends while all were swimming off Whitecap Beach.

The two were able to make it back to shore safely. Then rescue operations began for the missing young man.

Overnight, the U-S Coast Guard continued their search by air using both a helicopter and an airplane.

The Corpus Christi Fire Department resumed operations at 7:00 this morning.

KRIS6 News is monitoring the situation closely and will post all updates as they become available.
