Witnesses say they saw man fall from the New Jersey sky.

Kelly Hale says that she saw a person fall from the sky with no parachute Tuesday.

Despite the fact that there have been no reports of missing skydivers, Hale was not alone in this vision.

Two of Hale's co-workers at Shore Veterinarians in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey say that they also watched from their office windows as a human fell head-first from the sky.

"I saw the guy falling, at an angle, like this," Hale said while gesturing. "Straight down. No parachute. No paraglider."

Several people contacted Egg Harbor Township Police at about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday, saying that they watched a person free-falling from the sky.

The witnesses described the person as falling head first, at a slight angle, toward the ground, police say.

"You could see the arms and legs flailing and his clothes were blue, a dark blue like a navy, black and gray," Hale said. "There's no doubt that it was a person. We're 100 percent sure."

Witnesses last saw the free-faller in a northwest direction of Route 322 and Foster Avenue, police say.

Egg Harbor Township police and aviation units of the U.S. Coast Guard and New Jersey State Police extensively searched the area until about 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The search will remain suspended until further information becomes available.

"We didn't see any signs of debris, we didn't see any broken branches…of something like, falling through the tree-line," U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Commander Paul Whitmore said. "We didn't see anything out of the ordinary, but that's not to say it didn't happen."
