Newport Fire Rescue is attempting to find someone reportedly in distress off the turn-out off Little Creek Cove.
Coast Guard rescue boat is now on scene.
Coast Guard is headed to a report of three people in the water, and one person on shore signaling that the people are about 300 feet off shore…roughly the length of a football field.
Coast Guard is near the people in the water. Will pull them aboard and take them back to Yaquina Bay Coast Guard Station.
Newport Fire-Rescue and Coast Guard say it looks like three crab pot buoys floating in the sea swells.
Yup…crab pots buoys. All personnel heading back to headquarters.
