After 34 hours of searching and covering 1,000 nautical miles, an agency spokesperson confirmed to Daily Voice that at 8 p.m. on Monday, May 8, efforts to locate James Jaronczyk, 28, of Massapequa were suspended.

“This does not mean the case is closed, but the active search effort has been suspended pending new information,” he said.

According to Suffolk County Police, Jaranczyk was alone on a 22-foot Progression speedboat in the Great South Bay at around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, when he hit a wave and was thrown overboard.

Multiple agencies, including Suffolk Police Maritime Service and the local fire service, are scouting for the man.

Relatives have since taken to social media to implore the public to check their backyards, private docks or wherever they are ashore.

“If you live on the water, keep monitoring the canal,” wrote his cousin Twitter“Help us bring James home.”

Jaronczyk was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt and sweatpants.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact Suffolk County Police at 631-854-8152.
