    Search continues

    A very short article on the search continuing.

    Rescuers on Thursday continued to search the Susquehanna River for a man who jumped off the Route 26 bridge Saturday, Broome County Emergency Management Coordinator Brett Chellis said.

    Police said Joseph McAfee, 21, of Johnson City, jumped from the bridge between Vestal and Endicott. Hundreds of volunteer firefighters, river rescue teams and police have been involved in the search.

    Alcohol and an argument may have led to McAfee jumping off the bridge. Below are related articles:

    Searching the local TV station site for the name gives this result:

    UPDATE: Police ID Body in River

    Apr 28, 2008 at 9:17 AM EDT

    The body located in the Susquehanna River on Sunday, April 27th, at approximately 2:40 pm was in fact Joseph McAfee of Johnson City. A New York State Drivers license and other personal papers were located on the body,
    but when you click on the article, it simply says that police have identified the body in the river, and notes that Joseph McAfee has been missing. I suspect that the station initially published the information above before the family had been notified.

    Searching Legacy.com shows us that Joseph's obituary ran in the April 30, 2008, edition of the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin:

    McAfee, Joseph G. - Joseph G. McAfee of Johnson City Joseph G. McAfee, 21, of Johnson City, died unexpectedly. . .
    Rest in peace.
