Crews have suspended their search for a man believed to have drowned while trying to cross the Cedar River.
Cedar Rapids police say firefighters and dive teams searched for several hours Saturday and for much of Sunday, halting the search about 4:30 p.m. They're scheduled to resume the recovery effort at 1 p.m. Monday.
Police say two men were crossing the Cedar River about 7 p.m. Saturday when one began to struggle in the water. Witnesses told police he went under the water and did not surface.
Parts of the Cedar River are shallow, but firefighters say the man may have hit a deep spot of 12 to 15 feet.
