The search for a man who fell into the Kenduskeag Stream about 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Flour Mill rapids in Bangor resumed about 6 a.m. Monday after being suspended overnight.
Maine Warden Service divers, Bangor firefighters and members of DEEMI Search and Rescue were at Valley Avenue and Bruce Road.
Sgt. Alan Gillis of the Maine Warden Service said early Monday that the search most likely is a recovery effort as it is unlikely the man still is alive.
The man, who has not been identified, apparently fell into the stream accidentally after jumping off a wooden platform onto a concrete platform along the Kenduskeag Stream Trail after it passes under Interstate 95, Sgt. Wade Betters, spokesman for the Bangor Police Department, said Sunday.
