Police were searching for a Delta, Pa., man this weekend after he jumped into the Susquehanna River Saturday evening.

The search shifted from a rescue to recovery effort Sunday morning and was still in progress Tuesday evening.

Around 5 p.m. Saturday, a group of people anchored their boat on the Susquehanna River near Broad Creek in Harford County.

DeJohn Nash, 45, of Delta, who was on a recreational outing, jumped from the boat into the river and was carried away by current, according to a release from Maryland Department of National Resources Police.

Fellow Delta residents Phillip Shimboff, 49, Donna Shimboff, 52, and Nicholas Farabee, 18, jumped in after Nash, according to the release.

Farabee and Donna Shimboff got to Nash and kept him afloat, but Phillip Shimboff disappeared, according to the release.

Farabee, Nash and Donna Shimboff were in the water for half an hour before another boater picked them up, according to the release.

Maryland National Resources Police, Pennsylvania State Police, Darlington Volunteer Fire Company, Water Witch Fire Company and the Coast Guard all searched for Phillip Shimboff until 11 p.m. Saturday and resumed the search at first light Sunday, the release states.

“We searched and kept an active search and rescue throughout the day,” Sgt. Art Windemuth, public information officer for Maryland Natural Resources Police, said of Saturday’s search efforts.

Windemuth said the numerous police and fire companies searched tirelessly until 11 that night.

“We felt pretty certain that we searched the area thoroughly since it is a well defined area that we were searching in,” Windemuth said.

The search resumed at first light Sunday when focus shifted from a rescue attempt to recovering Mr. Shimboff’s body.

Maryland Natural Resources Police were conducting surface searches and side scan sonar searches Tuesday. The Underwater Operation Unit was also on scene with divers.

Canine cadaver dogs were also assisting in the search Tuesday.
