POLICE IN NEW JERSEY will resume searching for a man who disappeared into a Burlington County quarry yesterday afternoon when his ATV broke through the ice.

According to the New Jersey State Police, the unidentified man was riding ATVs with a group in a quarry off Route 70 in rural Woodland Township, Burlington County, when he attempted to cross an iced-over waterway. Temperatures were in the 40s for most of the day.

Police say the man and the ATV broke through the ice and disappeared. The New Jersey State Police were contacted about 5:15 p.m., though the search was later called off. A dive team is to resume the search today.
