Searchers failed to find signs that a anyone fell from a plane without a parachute over southern New Jersey.

Authorities called off an intensive aerial and ground search because of darkness Tuesday night.

Egg Harbor Township Police Capt. Michael Morris told The Press of Atlantic City police received reports from three "credible witnesses" that a person wearing a jumpsuit had fallen from a plane without a parachute.

Officers on the ground and State Police and Coast Guard helicopters scoured an area bordered around the Black Horse Pike and Atlantic City Expressway.
