The search continues for a missing diver near Breezy Point, Queens.

According to the Coast Guard, a 29-year-old man was spearfishing in the Rockaways when he was reported missing Friday morning.

Crews continued the search overnight with no success.

The Coast Guard, NYPD and New York City Fire Department personnel are scouring the area by boat and by helicopter but the diver hasn't been seen since 7 a.m. Friday.

Officials say the missing man is an experienced diver but he was not using an oxygen tank when he went into the water.
