Game Warden Craig Hernandez with the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife said searchers had been back out on the lake since early in the morning and had found nothing.
"It is still unknown if we even have a victim involved with this," Hernandez
said."Unless we get some more information, we are going to call off the search as of now."
Units with the Texas Department of Parks
and Wildlife, Hunt County Sheriff's Office
and the East Tawakoni and West Tawakoni police departments responded to the bridge shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday, after reports that a man had jumped from the middle of the bridge into the lake.
A command post was established at Kenny's Landing on the East Tawakoni side of the bridge and a dive team from the Commerce Emergency Corps was called in, Hernandez
and other game wardens searched the surface of the reservoir.Hernandez
said rescue crews began considering canceling the search during the afternoon.
"We've had a little bit of a change in some of the stories from the witnesses," Hernandez
said."I'm not entirely certain the person didn't make it to shore."Hernandez
said anything could have happened, but that the units had nothing further to go on.
"We have not even had a report of anyone missing," Hernandez
