    NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The search continued for a 13-year-old boy who jumped off the I-430 bridge Wednesday.

    The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office Water Patrol was out on the water all day and remained out until dark. They will resume Friday morning.

    Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said Wednesday the boy got out of a vehicle driven by his legal guardian about noon, climbed over the railing of the bridge and jumped.

    Rescue crews from the Little Rock Fire Department, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, and both the Johnson and Pope County Water Rescue teams have been helping in the search.

    The AGFC has brought in additional divers and equipment and the Johnson and Pope county teams brought a ROV (remote operated vehicle) that is tethered from the boat and used to search under water. The ROV has lights and cameras installed in it to allow the operator to monitor the underwater search from the boat.
