With painstaking care, a team of scuba divers from the Oxnard Police and Fire departments searched the depths near Channel Islands Harbor on Monday for the body of presumed drowning victim Alex Cabrera, 15.
Alex disappeared into the surf on Friday while swimming with two friends at Oxnard State Beach near the Embassy Suites Hotel.
A novice swimmer, Alex apparently was caught in the rough surf churned by a north wind and a south swell.
Teams of searchers from the Oxnard Police Department, Oxnard Fire Department, Ventura County Sheriff's Department and Coast Guard have searched off and on for Alex's body since he slipped under the water.
On Monday, Police Cmdr. Chuck Hookstra and Fire Capt. Mike O'Malia coordinated as four divers at a time carefully searched the waters near two jetties at Channel Islands Harbor.
