No sign -- living or dead -- has been seen of a man who said he planned to commit suicide at the Card Sound Bridge on Dec. 30.
The disappearance of Homestead resident James Alan Dziadura, 38, has been listed as a missing-person case since the businessman sent a detailed text outlining his plans to leap from the 65-foot-high span while tied to a 40-pound weight.
"At this point, we have received no additional information," Miami-Dade Police spokesman Roy Rutland said Monday.
"There is nothing new to report," said Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin.
Dziadura, married with children, vanished soon after he learned that Miami-Dade detectives wanted to question him as a "subject" in a sexual-battery case. No arrest warrant was issued.
After a relative received an e-mail that contained a suicide note from Dzidura, she contacted authorities. Monroe and Miami-Dade officers headed to the Card Sound Bridge, where they found Dziadura's unlocked van with his wallet and identification. His cell phone was found on the bridge.
A search by Sheriff's Office Dive Team members found a 40-pound dumbbell beneath the bridge. They found no trace of a body.
The U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Ocean Reef Public Safety officers also searched the area extensively.
Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay strongly suspects the suicide scene was staged to sidetrack investigators in the criminal case.
"Everything points to this guy knowing he could go to jail for a long time and trying to hide and duck from authorities," Ramsay told the Miami Herald. "It happens all the time."
