Excerpt from Yahoo News...
A woman has been swept out to sea in the US moments before her boyfriend planned to propose.
22-year-old Leafil Alforque is still missing.

Her boyfriend, Scott Napper, took her to Proposal Rock in the state of Oregon to pop the question at a place that got its name from couples ready to marry.

Napper and Alforque had been dating since they met on the Internet in 2005.

But Alforque had arrived in Oregon on a visa from the Philippines just three days before the fateful trip to the coast, The Oregonian reported.

Napper said the tide had receded around Proposal Rock on Saturday when the couple began to walk to it. He planned to propose and give her the ring he carried in his pocket.

About three metres from the rock, a wave about a metre high suddenly came toward them.

"I turned into it to keep from getting pulled under it," Napper said.

By the time he turned to find Alforque, only 1.2-metres tall and 42 kilograms, she had been caught by the receding waters.

"She was about 30 feet (9 metres) away, getting swept away," Napper said.

The 45-year-old tore off his jacket to get rid of any extra weight, and when he looked up again she was gone.

"That's the last I saw of her," he said in an interview on Wednesday, breaking into tears.

Emergency personnel called by someone on the beach arrived within minutes. Napper's phone no longer worked after being exposed to the water.

Along with rescuers, he searched for any sign of Alforque.

"I yelled for her," he said. "I was praying to God."

At one point, he saw someone wearing red - the colour of her jacket - on the shore signalling for him. But he quickly realised it was a rescuer.

Thick fog and dangerous water conditions hampered the rescue efforts before the search was suspended on Monday.

Her 25-year-old sister, Nova Alforque, said the family hopes the body can be recovered.

"My mother is always crying, day and night," Nova Alforque said by telephone from the Philippines.

"She wants my sister back. Even if she is dead, she wants her body to bury."
