    "The Coast Guard is searching for a 61-year-old woman who went missing Tuesday while diving near Cape Flattery in Clallam County.

    Lynn Flaherty was diving with her husband off Duncan Rock Tuesday morning when something went wrong and she didn't return to the surface, according to Coast Guard officials.

    Flaherty, who is an experienced diver and was wearing a dry suit, was supposed to resurface with her husband at 11:15 a.m., but she didn't make it.

    Coast Guard search crews from Station Neah Bay and Air Station Port Angeles arrived at 11:35 a.m. and immediately began searching for Flaherty.

    "We responded quickly and had crews on scene within 10 minutes of receiving the call," Coast Guard command duty officer Eric Cookson said in a news release. "We are saturating the search area, and we are hopeful of a successful outcome."

    Crews aboard a 47-foot Motor Life Boat and a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter are also on scene, and the Washington Department of Emergency Management is dispatching dive team from Kitsap County to assist in the search." -Komo News


    The current water temperature is 57 degrees, and the air temperature is 60 degrees. Searchers have 10 miles of visibility, according to the Coast Guard.


    Thoughts are with her husband and family.
