WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Coast Guard is trying to locate the owner of a surfboard found approximately 2.5 miles southwest of Diamond Head Thursday.

No one has been reported to be in distress, rescue officials say, but the surfboard was found with a broken leash.

The crew of a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium from Coast Guard Station Honolulu was conducting training in the area when they discovered the surfboard.

The surfboard is green and burgundy, 9 ft. 6 in. long, with the words 'Island Classic' on it.

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Galveston Island, a 110-foot patrol boat homeported in Honolulu, and an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point, are assisting with the search.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Sector Honolulu command center at (808) 842-2600.
