Search Called Off

Investigate

The Wayne County Sheriff's Department has temporarily suspended its search for a man believed to have been killed when a bridge collapsed.

Officials say they called off the search due to rising water levels. Almost three weeks after the accident, the remains of Grady Everett have not been found.

The 102-year-old bridge collapsed into the Chickasawhay River Nov. 2. Two other men were killed.

The Wayne County Civil Defense React Team is directing the search.
