The Santa Barbara County Fire Department is searching for a person in the ocean.
They received a report of a person in distress in the waters near the 6700 block of Del Playa in Isla Vista.
Firefighters, ambulances, a water rescue team and a helicopter all responded to the scene just before 3:00 a.m. on Saturday.
They searched for two hours and were unable to find anyone.
University of California police and firefighters are now waiting for the tide to recede to continue the search.
The beaches in Isla Vista are closed this weekend in an attempt to deter partiers from coming to the Deltopia event there.
