Details of Disappearance
Ian Foster was last seen swimming in the ocean, north of the North Jetty near Driftwood Shores in Florence.
The Coast Guard received a report from local 911 at 1:35 p.m. that Foster was struggling in the surf. A Motor Life Boat reported seeing Foster struggling in the water in the surf zone. After the first sighting, Coast Guard crews lost sight of the boy. The helicopter and boat crews thoroughly searched a three-and-a-half by two-and-a-half mile area around the Siuslaw River Jetty but found no sign of Foster.
