NEWBURGH - Emergency crews are searching for a person who may have jumped off the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.

State police confirm a tractor-trailer was found idling in the eastbound lane of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge around 10:30 p.m yesterday and that surveillance video shows someone climbing over the rail.

Police resumed searching this morning after calling off their efforts last night because of the dangerous boating conditions. Responders say much of the river is iced over, complicating the search.

Authorities have not released the name of the truck driver and say no one actually witnessed a person jump.
