Crews called off a search for the last of three family members swept out to sea in powerful surf while looking for their dog.

Despite heavy fog, the Coast Guard had searched through the weekend for a 16-year-old boy swept out to see along with his parents, according to the Associated Press.

Waves reaching 10 feet in height pulled the dog into the ocean as it ran to retrieve a stick at Big Lagoon, a beach north of Eureka on Saturday, according to Dana Jones, a state Parks and Recreation district superintendent, in the Times-Standard.
