Earl Update: Search for Missing Swimmers Ends

BELMAR, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey authorities have called off a search for a second victim of rough surf caused by Hurricane Earl and its predecessor Danielle.

High winds and looming rains forced the Coast Guard around midday Friday to suspend a search for 20-year-old Pardip Singh of Carteret, N.J. State police hope to resume the search by boat if conditions improve later in the day.

Singh entered the ocean Thursday night at Belmar, N.J. with a group of people but did not reappear. His disappearance came on the same day authorities recovered the body of 23-year-old Franky Lezin of Asbury Park, N.J.

Lezin drowned after entering the roiling waters Tuesday.
