Search crews: Still no sign of missing swimmer at Jones Beach

JONES BEACH - Police helicopters and marine units continued the search today for a Massapequa man who went missing at Jones Beach yesterday. Raymond Roth, 47, was at the beach yesterday with his son when he went for a swim at around 3 p.m. He was reported missing shortly afterward. Park police say the son didn't see anything happen to his father. Investigators believe Roth may have entered the waters beyond the lifeguard-protected area. Roth's family says he is a strong swimmer who frequents Jones Beach, and officials say the tide was calm yesterday despite the rainy weather. Police say they are treating Roth's disappearance as a missing persons case because no one actually saw Roth go down in the water.Officials resume search for missing Jones Beach swimmer
