R.I. police officer missing off coast of Costa Rica

A Rhode Island police officer has been reported missing in Costa Rica after relatives say he was pulled out to sea by rip currents while swimming with his brother.

Relatives of Richard Jean-Georges told WJAR-TV  that the Costa Rican National Guard and members of the U.S. embassy in the Central American country are continuing to search for him. Jean-Georges joined the Bristol police force four years ago.

Jean-Georges was reported missing Saturday while swimming with his younger brother off Jaco Beach on Costa Rica's central Pacific coast.

His father, Manny Jean-Georges Sr., told WJAR that both his sons were pulled out to sea by rip currents and his younger son was rescued. He says Richard Jean-Georges was in Costa Rica to celebrate a cousin's birthday.
