Open water swimmer missing off La Jolla Shores - Coast Guard suspends search!

From La Jolla Patch:

According to the Coast Guard, 53-year-old Jim Repeta planned to swim the two miles from Scripps Pier to the La Jolla Shores lifeguard tower but never made it.

Dunphy said the search was called off around 2 p.m.

"Pending any further developments, we are not going to be searching actively anymore," Dunphy said.

the plot thickens... an update on the LA Times insinuates that this may have been more of a planned disappearance

That is so awesome... I have not read the article but I am imagining a life insurance policy, a will, all the stuff in a melodrama circa 1964.

I am going to go read it.
