Posted: Updated:

CAPE CHARLES, Va. - Officials have resumed searching for a young boy who went missing in the water off the Eastern Shore of Virginia on Sunday.

The Coast Guard tells 47 ABC that after suspending the search on Sunday night, they are back in the air looking for the 8-year-old. Along with the Coast Guard helicopter, the VA Marine Resources Commission has sent out boats and divers to assist in the search.

Early Monday morning, VMRC had a six-winged aircraft up, but it is down at this time. The 8-year-old was reportedly swimming near Cape Charles Beach on Sunday evening when he went missing.

Officials say at this point, the investigation has turned to a search and recovery mission.
