SANFORD — Rescue crews were out again this morning, searching a stretch of river along the Chatham and Lee County line for a missing swimmer.

Several people went for a swim Sunday; one of them didn't come back.

Divers searched for several hours last night but had to stop because of fog.

Neither the name nor hometown of the missing person has been released.

Chatham and Lee County teams have been joined by wildlife officers in checking the water and shoreline.
