NEW YORK (AP) — The Coast Guard says it has suspended its search for a man who jumped off a Staten Island Ferry.

Authorities say the man went overboard off the Staten Island-bound Spirit of America ferry at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, near Governors Island and the Statue of Liberty.

Service was temporarily halted; the ferry docked around 11 p.m.

The Coast Guard searched through the night before suspending efforts Friday morning.
