MIAMITOWN, Ohio (AP) — Crews are resuming their search of the Great Miami River near Cincinnati a day after drivers say a man stopped his car and jumped off an interstate bridge.

Firefighters and police officers started the search again Saturday morning after suspending their efforts late Friday afternoon.

Drivers on Interstate 74 west of Cincinnati reported seeing the man get out of his car and climb over the side of the bridge before he went in the water early Friday afternoon.

WCPO-TV in Cincinnati reports that a Hamilton County Sheriff’s helicopter saw the man in the river but he quickly disappeared under the strong currents.
