A swimmer went missing Friday at the north end of Ocean City by the Longport Bridge, near the Great Egg Harbor inlet. The man went missing around 1:00 p.m. and at that time the tide is running out, which could have caused the swimmer problems.

The area is a "No Swimming Zone" with no lifeguards.

The 19-year-old man was swimming with a companion at the time. The other man was able to get out of the water.
