A search was called off for a man missing in the water off Point Loma after a jet ski was spotted on the shore early Monday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The aquatic vehicle was found around 3 a.m. on the shore near the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant. The U.S. Coast Guard began their search after learning three people were aboard the watercraft, with one possibly remaining in the water.

Two people who authorities said were on the watercraft were taken into custody. It is unclear what charges they could possibly face.

The search for the missing third person was called off some time before 10 a.m., with that individual remaining missing.

Monday’s incident comes shortly after U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said the number of illegal maritime crossings is at its highest point in Southern California. In this fiscal year alone, at least 250 incidents have been reported.
