The U.S. Coastguard is searching for a missing woman who was snorkeling for scallops near St. Martin Key, just west of Homosassa.

The Coastguard received a call just before 6:00 p.m. on Thursday from the woman’s husband saying that the couple’s boat drifted away from them while they were snorkeling.

The man said that he swam a half mile to retrieve the boat and when he returned to the original location he could not find his wife.

Authorities have not released the name of the woman at this time.
