Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current at around 4pm local time. Lifeguards raced into the water to pull everyone out and while Shad’s son was rescued, he has not been located.

TMZ noted that officials are desperately searching fort he 39 year old Gaspard. The LA Fire Department believed Gaspard “did submerge” in the water. Divers were sent to scour the area and helicopters were searching from above.
