With rough weather and dangerous tides, searchers are taking a break from looking for two hunters who have not been seen since Saturday.

State Police Sgt. Stephen Jones said the search in and near the Delaware Bay for Jozef Karamuz and Zdzislaw "Jerry" Piorkowski was suspended Wednesday.

On Sunday, the searchers found the body of a third hunter, Jan Toryfter. An autopsy showed he died of exposure.

The Polish section of Philadelphia's Port Richmond section has been taking hard the disappearance of Piorkowski. He hosted the program "Polish Kaleidoscope" on a Philadelphia public television station.

Piorkowski is also the owner of a travel agency.

Karamuz is an emergency-room physician.
