The Galveston County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Coast Guard were searching Monday afternoon for a 33-year-old woman who went missing while swimming in Crystal Beach.

Rescue crews began searching about 1:45 p.m. for Brandy Mosley, who was reported missing after swimming out to help her 4-year-old son who was struggling to swim in the Gulf near the Holiday Beach subdivision in Crystal Beach, according to the coast guard. The boy made it to shore, but Mosley had not yet been seen, the coast guard said.

The coast guard and sheriff's office search was still underway at 3:45 p.m. Monday, Capt. Ron Hill said.
