BATH — Emergency responders from several agencies were searching Thursday morning for a man who reportedly jumped off the Woolwich end of the Sagadahoc Bridge.

Police Chief Mike Field said the operation began shortly after witnesses reported the incident at 5:11 p.m. Wednesday.

The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department was trying to determine the man’s identity while the Maine Marine Patrol headed the water search, Field said. Bath’s Police and Fire departments were also involved in the search, along with Bath Iron Works security, the Maine State Police and the U.S. Coast Guard, according to Field.
