CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -Divers resumed searching the Delaware River on Friday for the father of Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson.
Floyd ``Pete'' Nelson was reported missing from his job at a tugboat repair shop about noon Thursday.
Floyd Nelson was last seen near the water, and officials said it was feared that he had fallen into the river just south of the Commodore Barry Bridge.
Mayor Wendell Butler said the U.S. Coast Guard and divers searched the waters until dark Thursday and the search resumed shortly after 8 a.m. Friday.
Floyd Nelson, a Vietnam War veteran, wrote a book about his son's basketball career in 2004 entitled ``Jameer.'' The Magic drafted his son in 2004 out of Saint Joseph's.
