Former WWE Star Shad Gaspard Missing During Venice Beach Swim

Officials are desperately searching for Former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard — after he went missing during a swim at Venice Beach on Sunday with his 10-year-old son.

Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current around 4 PM — with lifeguards racing into the water to pull everyone out.

Gaspard’s son was rescued — but the 39-year-old pro wrestler has not been located.

One official working with the L.A. Fire Dept. told media they believe the 39-year-old “did submerge.”

Divers were sent to scour the area. Helicopters were searching from above.
