(AP) — Authorities say a Greensboro man on vacation has drowned off Topsail Beach.
Investigators say the man told his wife he was going for a swim Saturday morning, and his body was found near a pier about 500 feet away from where he entered he ocean several hours later.
Authorities say rip currents were heavy in the area Saturday, and they suspect the man got caught in one.
Police Chief Sam Gervase says the man appeared to be on vacation with his wife and two children. His name has not been released.
