Body of veteran scuba diver found near Santa Cruz Island

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Coroner is searching for answers in the death of a scuba diver who disappeared while diving off Santa Cruz Island this weekend.

That's located just off the coast of Santa Barbara.

Deputies say 27-year-old Kristopher Carlsen was diving for lobster with his father and a friend Saturday morning when he disappeared underwater.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Dive Team and other agencies scoured the area.

They eventually found his body in a crevasse leading into a cave.

Carlsen had 13 years of scuba diving experience.
