KEY WEST — The U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife officials are searching for a Texas woman who went missing on Tuesday while scuba diving in the Florida Keys.

Jordan Jay Fisher, 50, of Rockport, Texas, was diving the Vandenberg wreck off of Key West with her husband, two other people and a dive master, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

The dive master signaled for everyone to surface, but the group lost sight of Fisher while returning to the mooring line, the sheriff’s office said. The dive master told investigators he made several searches around the wreck until he was short on air.

The sheriff’s dive team assisted in the search for Fisher.

Officials said foul play is not suspected.
