Search Called Off for Missing Swimmer

After 22 hours of scouring the water, the Coast Guard has called off the search for 18 year old Chris Jackson. 

The League City teen went missing while swimming off of the far west end of Galveston Island at the San Luis Pass.  A friend swimming with Jackson called Galveston police about 8:30pm Friday when the victim didn’t resurface after they were overtaken by a large wave. 

Coast Guard Sector Houston/Galveston Command Duty Officer Elvie Damaso said, "suspending a search is not a decision made lightly."
