BALTIMORE (WJZ)-- Baltimore County officials say a man dove off a boat and didn't resurface off of Hart-Miller Island Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say the man anchored his boat at Hart-Miller Island and the anchor got stuck so he jumped into the water to free it and never resurfaced.

The Coast Guard and County officials conducted a water rescue shortly after 6 p.m. but have suspended the search and will resume Thursday.
