Provincial police are combing the waters near Port Burwell, as officials search for a missing swimmer.

OPP say they received a call around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday for a missing swimmer in Port Burwell, which is located in Bayham Township.

Through their investigation, police learned that a group of youths were swimming near a pier when they came to a deeper section of water. OPP say one male was struggling to swim and went under the water.
