Brooklyn Bridge: NYPD Search for 'Suspicious' Person Over (Wed., Dec. 5)

Brooklyn Bridge traffic headed to Manhattan ground to a near stand-still tonight as police searched for a reported emotionally disturbed person. UPDATE: At 7 p.m. the police dispatcher was calling this a search for a "suspicious person."

An NYPD helicopter and a marine unit buzzed the area as well as NYPD vehicles.

Around 6:40 p.m. police reported they did not see anyone on the Manhattan-side tower.
At 6:53 an officer reported: "We did a complete search of the cables over the Brooklyn Bridge. I'm going going to close down traffic [in an unheard direction]."

UPDATE: By 7:45 p.m. traffic was flowing again in both directions. The situation appears to have resolved.
