10:05 PM: Seattle Fire is sending a water-rescue response by land and sea to the Seacrest vicinity. The dispatcher has told responders it’s a report of two diving students missing, reported by their instructor. Updates to come.
10:09 PM: This has been updated to one diver missing, in the Honey Bear (Cove 2) vicinity.
10:19 PM: Search continues. As shown in the photo above, crews on land are using a fire-truck ladder to help search.
10:29 PM: Rescue divers are searching, as well as crews in boats and on land; SPD is part of the response as well as SFD. The missing diver was described in an early dispatch as a woman in her 30s.
10:55 PM: The search continues.
11:04 PM: The medic units have been dismissed from the response (thanks to Aaron for that tip from the scene), which indicates this has switched into more of a recovery mode.
11:18 PM: SFD says this is now an SPD-led search.
1:30 AM: No further updates. We’ll check with SPD later this morning.
