Missing Person Search on Icy Water

A search for a missing man brought a large amount of rescue personnel out onto the ice  today.

Various agencies responded to the icy waters off N Dorset Avenue in Ventnor, N.J. Thursday morning.

Ventnor City Police told NBC10.com's Ted Greenberg that a search began for a missing man last night. During that search K-9s followed the man’s scent to Ski Beach on the bay side of Dorset Avenue in the Jersey Shore resort town.

This morning the search began on the frozen bay. Shortly after 11 a.m., a New Jersey State Police team dive team wearing wet suits could be seen using a raft to search the icy bay.

Police didn’t identify the missing man.
