A search is underway for an 18-year-old Nevada man who was swept off rocks into the ocean at a Southern California beach.

Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority says searchers resumed their efforts at daybreak Tuesday.

Anthony Parnell was last seen Sunday afternoon in the water off Laguna Beach.

Friends say Parnell was on the rocks just south of Thousand Steps Beach when he was hit by high surf and washed away.

Parnell's parents say he played football at Centennial High School in Las Vegas and recently signed up for the Army.
