LOS ANGELES, October 8, 2006 - A 20-year-old man has died while diving without oxygen off San Clemente Island about 75 miles northwest of San Diego.

Authorities say a Los Angeles-based charter boat reported Sunday afternoon that a diver had been missing for about 30 minutes.

The charter boat's crew radioed to say they had found the man's body before a Coast Guard rescue boat could arrive.

Authorities say the boat and the body arrived back at the Los Angeles Harbor Sunday night.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the coroner's office will investigate the death of the so-far unidentified man.
