The Coast Guard is temporarily suspending their search for a missing man.

Officials believe the man was riding a snowmobile when we fell through the ice late Wednesday night.

It happened in Newport, off Stoney Point near the Fermi Plant.

The Coast Guard searched for the man with a boat and a helicopter but weather and ice conditions forced them to suspend their search.
