A 17-year old youth remained missing Saturday night after disappearing during a swim in rough waters off Rockaway at around 5 p.m., police said.

The high school student was last seen off Beach 86th Street, swimming with two friends who tried unsuccessfully to save him, a witness told The Post.

A search by NYPD divers was called off at 6:22 p.m. after they were hampered by strong rip currents. A recovery effort will begin Sunday morning.
