Thruway State Police said Sunday said they are continuing their search for a man believed to have jumped off the South Grand Island Bridge Friday morning.

Witnesses reported seeing the man jump from the bridge near the southbound traffic lanes about 9:45 a.m. Friday. State police found a pickup, which they believe was owned by the man, abandoned on East River Road on Grand Island.

Investigators say they know the identity of the man, who is believed to be in his 60s, but have said they will not be able to confirm the identity until his body is found.
