WAIALAE-KAHALA (HawaiiNewsNow) – At 9:45 p.m. Tuesday the U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for a diver who disappeared in the ocean off Waialae-Kahala late Monday morning.

New York City resident Matthew Curley, 28, was exploring a sunken vessel on a guided dive led by Island Divers when he vanished. Island Divers assisted the Coast Guard and the Honolulu Fire Department in search efforts both Monday and Tuesday.

On Tuesday, one of the search crews from Island Divers found a fin floating in the water about a mile from the site Curley was diving.

"The fin is an object that has been identified by the dive company as the type and size that the diver would have worn, but not anything specific that it was the one that he wore," said Honolulu Fire Captain Terry Seelig.

HFD continues its search Wednesday morning.
