MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (AP) -- The Coast Guard is looking for a man last seen fishing on the south end of Portsmouth Island northeast of Morehead City.
 
The Coast Guard says the 57-year-old man was last seen going underwater while surf fishing late Monday afternoon.
 
Carteret County 911 dispatchers called the Coast Guard to report the man went underwater and did not resurface.
 
The Coast Guard sent a 47-foot boat from Hatteras Inlet and a helicopter from Elizabeth City.
 
The man's name has not been released.
