UPDATE: Authorities suspend search Sunday night at Kenduskeag Stream for person who fell in

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Maine Game Wardens have suspended their search efforts tonight for a local man who they say fell in the Kenduskeag Stream.

Police have not yet identified the man but we're told he's in his 40's.

Officials say around 5:30 this evening the man climbed over the railing of an overlook at the intersection of Bruce Road and Kenduskeag Avenue.

Police believe the man accidentally slipped and went into the stream.

Sgt. Wade Betters with the Bangor Police Department said, "This time of year the water is still quite cold and that is definitely a concern. Also the speed of the water, the water is quite rough through here. And if you happen to go in the water right here, you could get carried downstream rather quickly."

Search efforts continue Monday.
