PULASKI CO., Va. (WDBJ7) Right now a search is underway in Pulaski County.

Dive teams are looking for a woman who jumped off the Radford Memorial Bridge Saturday night.

The dive teams are still preparing to go back into the water around mid-day Monday.

According to the sheriff's office, several witnesses saw the woman park her car along the bridge, climb onto the railing, and jump into the water. This happened just before midnight Saturday.

Dive teams searched until 2 o'clock in the morning and resumed at 8 a.m. Sunday. However the effort had to be called off early Sunday because the water was too murky.

The sheriff's office says divers and helicopters will resume the search when the water is clearer.
