The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended the search for a 19-year-old Humboldt State University student who was swept off of the North Jetty on Monday afternoon while fishing with friends.

KeyMaan Stringer, who was from Los Angeles, was last seen about 4:30 p.m. when he went to free a line and was hit by a wave. Another man went into the water after Stringer but was unable to reach him.

According to a release, the Coast Guard traversed “160 square-nautical miles for 16 hours in a continuous effort” to locate Stringer. The search was called off just before 10 a.m. today.

Humboldt State is offering counseling to members of the campus community.
