DRUMORE, Pa. (AP) – The search has resumed for a teenager who went missing after diving off a cliff and into the Susquehanna River in central Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania State Police say the teenager was diving off a cliff with friends in southern Lancaster County around 6 p.m. Thursday. Officials say he never resurfaced.

Dive teams were called in to search the water and canines were searching on the ground Thursday.

The search resumed around noon Friday.

The incident happened at a popular gathering spot near the Ferncliff Wildflower and Wildlife Preserve, where the 20- to 30-foot cliffs offer dramatic views of the river.
