Ex-WWE Star Shad Gaspard Missing - Got Caught In Beach Rip Current

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

Shad and his son were among a group of swimmers who got caught in a strong rip current around 4PM yesterday. Lifeguards raced into the water to pull everyone out. While Shad's son was rescued -- but the 39-year-old pro wrestler has not been located.

One witness at the scene tells TMZ that when lifeguards raced into the ocean, Shad directed rescuers to help his son first, which they did. One official working with the L.A. Fire Dept. told media they believe the 39-year-old "did submerge."

Divers are scouring the area and helicopters have been searching from above.
