A lot of folks drove to Huntington Beach on Saturday to get an up-close look at the dolphin. To their surprise, it was no longer swimming around the narrow channel.

Officials confirmed the dolphin swam away, but they don't know when it left the wetlands. Experts said the dolphin showed no signs of illness and was eating. They said it may have been bullied into the channel by other dolphins.
