Authorities are searching for a 17-year-old boy who disappeared while swimming in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

The Coast Guard and the St. Johns County Fire and Rescue Department launched the search for Jarrel Stewart on Monday.

A body found early Tuesday on the beach near where the teen vanished has not been identified.

Authorities say he was trying to help his girlfriend out of a rip current. The girl made it out of the water safely.

Stewart was reportedly wearing a gray T-shirt and no life jacket.
