The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office says a 17-year-old boy who was rescued near Pirate's Cove on Wednesday was reported as an at-risk missing person from Bakersfield.

The teen, whose name has not been released, was reported missing by family members at approximately 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Sheriff's officials say deputies were able to locate the teen's vehicle at the Pirate's Cove parking lot on Tuesday, and Sheriff's Search and Rescue began searching the area on foot and with a drone but were unable to find him.

At approximately 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Search and Rescue was preparing to renew the search when the boy was located in a remote area of Pirate's Cove.

Port San Luis Harbor Patrol and CAL FIRE deployed a swimmer who was able to reach the teen and take him to a Harbor Patrol boat. He was then transported to Harford Pier to be reunited with his family.

Sheriff's officials say the boy was evaluated by medics at the scene and returned to his family.
