A man says he was about to propose to his girlfriend when she was swept away by a large wave in Oregon.
Her body has not been found.
Scott Napper and Leafil Alforque met online in December 2006. Alforque, a 22-year-old from the Philippines, arrived in Oregon the day before Thanksgiving.
Napper says they had marriage on their minds when they set out for a place well known for proposals, just off the coast of Nekowin.
Napper says he was about to climb up the rock with her and give her the ring when a huge wave swept Alforque out to sea.
Napper says he could not get to her. Alforque's body has not been recovered.
