WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The U.S. Coast Guard and Ocean Safety crews on Saturday searched for a possible missing surfer off Oahu, but later determined that no one was missing.

It all started when a tour bus driver contacted Ocean Safety at around 3 p.m., saying he saw an orange and white surfboard floating near the cliffs off Diamond Head. After an hour-long search and no confirmation of a missing person, lifeguards stood down.

Rescue crews used a helicopter, boats and jet ski as part of their search efforts.
