He got into difficulties and failed to resurface from his dive, according to the Maritime & Coastguard Agency, at which point his group raised the alarm.

Falmouth Coastguard coordinated a search involving a helicopter and three lifeboats, and requested boats in the area for the annual Fastnet Race to report any sightings.
