BRIDGEHAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The search for a missing jet skier is expected to resume Monday morning in the waters off Suffolk County.

Southampton police said the 29-year-old man and a woman he was with fell into Mecox Bay when their jet ski overturned around 7 p.m. Sunday.

The woman was rescued by a passing boater, but the man has yet to be found.

A search team including Suffolk County Police Aviation, Southampton Bays Constables and multiple fire and ambulance personnel were unable to find the man before the search was suspended Sunday when it got dark.
