    An ATV rider attempted to cross the ice at the Ward Sand Quarry in Vincentown. Witnesses say he didn't make it across and fell under the ice.

    Friends at the scene identified the ATV rider as Philip Raimondo of Shamong Township.

    They say he is under the ice after it caved as he tried to cross the quarry. A call into dispatch at 5:09 p.m. reported an ATV rider fell into the ice and there was no sign of the rider.

    Red Lion State Police responded to the scene at 5:14 p.m. Search crews spent nearly two hours searching the quarry Sunday evening. Officials believe someone is in the water based on witness information. Due to darkness and for safety reasons, the search was called off Sunday.

    Search crews did not return Monday to continue the search and may resume the search on Tuesday, pending weather conditions, according to Burlington County Dispatchers.
