PERTH AMBOY, N.J. (AP) — Two bodies have been found in a central New Jersey waterway.

Authorities say the bodies were found Saturday morning in the Raritan River, near the Victory Bridge in Perth Amboy, but neither body has been identified. One was an adult, while the other a juvenile male.

Perth Amboy police tell NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1mqEKC0) that the bodies were found by a state police marine unit involved in an ongoing search for a man who had reportedly jumped from the bridge earlier this week.

Authorities have said that marine units had found some clothing in the water during previous searches. But it wasn’t clear Saturday if the clothing was connected to either victim.
