Search Called off for Missing Man

The search for a missing man has been called off. The man, 42-year old Benito Flores was helping his cousin Pastor Maurigro Cervantes with a baptism near Guadalupe Dunes Park when a large wave hit them. Pastor Cervantes and another person made it back to shore, but Flores was missing. Local law enforcement agencies were told of reports that a body was found on the surf line, but called off the search when it was clear fishing buoys were mistaken for a body. The U.S. Coast Guard has called off their search for Flores as well. However, the search will continue if any new leads are found.
