Officials are searching for a possible missing diver in waters near Rabbit Island, a case that was reported early Wednesday night just before sunset.

The report was made shortly after a paddler came across a dive buoy.

Honolulu Emergency Responders began a search for the diver off east Oahu that continued until about 10 p.m.

The buoy was never found Wednesday night, prompting the search to resume Thursday morning.

If anyone has information about the buoy or its owner, they are asked to call authorities.
