BRISTOL, N.H. (AP) - Officials say the search for a man who is presumed to have drowned after jumping into a New Hampshire river is on hold because of rising waters.

Rescue crews started searching the Smith River in Bristol on Monday evening for 32-year-old Aaron Hoyt of Northfield. The recovery effort continued on Tuesday by boat.

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say because of quickly rising waters, the search was done by air from a helicopter on Wednesday.

Fish and Game Lt. James Kneeland says they will take it day by day until workable, safe conditions allow them to get back on the river.
