A man was rescued Tuesday night after he reportedly went missing while riding a personal watercraft in the Lakes Bay area near the Atlantic City High School.

The Coast Guard said the state police were searching for 27-year-old Henry Sanchez, of Egg Harbor Township, who was last seen around 7 p.m. with boats and a helicopter in the area.

He was found in what was described as a "whirlpool island" in the water near Margate shortly before 11 p.m.
