Search continues for missing body boarder at Sandy Beach

SANDY BEACH (HawaiiNewsNow) - On Oahu, the search continues for missing body surfer, Lance Kaowili.

Divers scoured the coast Sunday from an area known as the Blowhole to Hanauma Bay, and search crews on foot checked along Kalanianaole Highway.

The 49-year old was last seen on Thursday wearing black board shorts and swim fins.

"We continued our search from yesterday. Started at daybreak this morning. We continued our search through the day. Apparently we found a handboard that belongs to the individual", said Capt. Keith Nakanelua of the Honolulu Fire Department.

Crews also found a pair of board shorts Saturday, but authorities haven't been able to confirm the clothing belongs to Kaowili.

At sundown, authorities will decide whether to resume the search on Monday.
