The search continues for a Jackson resident who was swept into the gulf by powerful rip currents. 

Eric Pye, 32, and his wife Audrea were on a family vacation in Orange Beach, Alabama. 

With double red flags flying, lifeguards received a report of a distressed swimmer in the rough stormy surf near the Turquoise Condominiums. When a lifeguard approached him, the man went under and did not surface. Lifeguards had to pull out for their own safety. 

Pye and his wife were just married on June 8. On her Facebook page, Audrea Pye says she still hopes he will be found.
