The Iranian navy has seized a US cargo ship and escorted it to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, media reports say.
There has been no official confirmation of the incident from either Iranian or American officials.
Reports say the vessel had 34 crew aboard at the time.
Iran's semi-official Fars news agency said the vessel had been detained "for trespassing on Iran's territorial waters".
There are no words on Obama's whereabouts, but the golf course would be a good place to start looking.
The Pentagon says that the ship is not American, but they confirm that Iranian forces has seized the DANISH ship MV Maersk Tigris after an Iranian patrol boat fired warning shots at the ship's bow.
A spokesman for the Pentagon told Reuters that there are 34 crew members on board and that none of these are US citizens.
He says that the ship was on its way through the Strait of Hormuz when it was stopped.
The ship is owned by the Danish company Maersk, which is renting the freighter to Rickmers Ship management, said Maersk to the news agency Ritzau.
