ORIGINAL STORY:

Agencies with Brevard and Indian River counties will resume their search for man who reportedly fell off of a jetty at Sebastian Inlet State Park late Wednesday evening.   However, the U.S. Coast Guard will search throughout the night, officials say.

The missing person is described as a white man, standing 6 feet, 4 inches tall, and weighing approximately 215 pounds.  He was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans at the time of his disappearance.

A crew from Brevard County Fire Rescue and a helicopter from the Indian River County Sheriff's Office were the first to respond around 9 p.m.   They fear that currents and high surf are a factor in the search.
