US Coast Guard vessels and a helicopter conducted a four hour search of the St.Clair River near the Blue Water Bridge early this morning.

US Customs notified the Coast Guard after an abandoned vehicle was found on the American side of the north spanĀ around midnight.

It’s believed someone jumped from the bridge.

Port Huron Police say the vehicle is registered to a 36-year-old Sarnia man.

The search was suspended around 4am.

No further details will be released.

This is the second such incident at the bridge this week.
