The search could be called off Friday for a White Plains teenager who was swept out to sea during an adventure vacation in Hawaii.

Authorities say 15-year-old Tyler Madoff, a student at Scarsdale High School, was part of a kayak tour group that set shore on the Big Island.

Madoff and another boy were resting in a tide pool Wednesday when a series of waves pulled them off the beach.

That second teenager was rescued and remains hospitalized in critical condition.
