WAREHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — Crews are set to resume the search for a person who may have fallen through the ice in Wareham Sunday evening.

Multiple departments were deployed to a boggy area off County Road around 4:30 p.m., including members of the Plymouth County Dive Team.

A neighbor said crews began searching the reservoir leading into the cranberry bog.

Nancy Andrews has lived across from the water for decades. She said while the bog is shallow, the reservoir is at least twenty feet deep.

“They just don’t, they don’t freeze hard and long enough for a period of time to wanna be safe,” Nancy Andrews said.

After crews suspended their search around 12:30 a.m. Monday, they say the search is expected to resume around 8:30 a.m.
