Search continues for missing fisherman


Fire rescuers, including a county helicopter, searched the Puna coastline Sunday for a fisherman who was swept out to sea Friday night.

The search for the 56-year-old man continues today.

Witnesses told authorities the man either slipped and fell into the ocean or was washed to sea by a wave while fishing from a 10-foot-high cliff at about 9 p.m. Friday at Malama Flats, near MacKenzie State Recreation Area.
