SAN DIEGO The body of a scuba diver reported missing Sunday near kelp beds off Point Loma was recovered by a rescue dive team, a lifeguard lieutenant said.

Lifeguards were called to Sunset Cliffs about 12:50 p.m. to search for the diver, who reportedly was in 80 feet of water, San Diego lifeguard Lt. Greg Buchanan said.

The man had taken the dive off a private boat, Buchanan said.

The lifeguard dive unit was assisted by helicopter and boat crews from the U.S. Coast Guard.

The team found the diver's body shortly before 4 p.m., Buchanan said.
