Authorities say a Greensboro man on vacation has drowned off Topsail Beach.
Investigators say Stephen O'Rork told his wife he was going for a swim Saturday morning, and his body was found near a pier about 500 feet away from where he entered he ocean several hours later.
Authorities say rip currents were heavy in the area Saturday, and they suspect the 36-yearf-old man got caught in one.
Police Chief Sam Gervase says the man was on vacation with his wife and two children.
