BATON ROUGE - Police suspended their search for a woman who stopped her car on the Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge, got out and jumped off the bridge.

A Baton Rouge Police spokesperson said the woman's body went back under the water and is believed to have washed downstream.

Searchers used helicopters and boats to try and locate the body.  The incident reduced traffic on the bridge to one lane for some time.
