    DOOR COUNTY (WLUK) -- Deputies in Door County are searching for a missing Neenah man.

    The Door County Sheriff's Office says it received a call around 9 p.m. Sunday about a 57-year-old man who was visiting the town of Jacksonport and never returned home.

    Authorities say they are not releasing the man's name or a photo of him at this time.

    The man last spoke to his wife on the phone around 5 p.m. and told her he was taking photos at Cave Point County Park.

    Deputies went to the park just before 10 p.m. to find the man's vehicle in the parking lot.

    A foot search of the park turned up some property near a cliff along the shore, believed to belong to the missing man.

    Conditions at the park were reported to be dangerous Sunday, with seven to eight-foot waves on Lake Michigan and ice-covered cliffs.

    The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department did a ground search while the U.S. Coast Guard searched the area by boat and helicopter.

    The search was suspended around 1:30 a.m. Monday and resumed at daylight.
