CLEVELAND -- Authorities say there was no missing windsurfer despite reports that indicated otherwise.

Officials say the person who reported the missing windsurfer around 7 p.m. could not confirm they actually spotted a windsurfer in distress near Perkins Beach.

The report indicated a man, who was windsurfing with a large group, had gone underwater and wasn't seen again.

The Coast Guard had used a helicopter and a boat to search portions of Lake Erie for three hours.

Authorities spoke with several windsurfers on the water with none of them reporting any signs of somebody in distress.

Windsurfers on the shore said the same thing.
