The search continued Sunday for the man who jumped off the Twin Bridges Saturday afternoon.

Frigid water temperatures, strong currents and debris made the search difficult for five crews. Several used side-scan sonar near the area where the man was last seen, but did not find anything.

Bryan Coghill, assistant chief of the Henderson City/County Rescue, said water crews will likely resume their search once the levels fall, but that may not be until next weekend. In the meantime, he said tug boats and barges will be keeping an eye out for the body. His crews will also continue to look from different vantage points on shore.

Coghill said the cold water temperature means it will take longer for the body to decompose and rise to the surface.
