Massachusetts State Police continue search for missing ‘Jaws Bridge’ jumper on Martha’s Vineyard


State Police on Wednesday resumed their search for the missing brother who jumped from the “Jaws Bridge” on Martha’s Vineyard and didn’t resurface.

State Police have been looking for Tavaughn Bulgin, a 21-year-old man who’s a seasonal worker at a restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard. Police on Monday recovered the body of his 26-year-old brother, Tavaris, who also jumped into the water from the “Jaws Bridge” late Sunday night.

Due to poor weather conditions, State Police divers and Marine Unit crews were not in the water on Wednesday as police searched by land — and potentially from above.

“State Police will continue to search today by land and possibly by air for Tavaughn Bulgin, 21, who has been missing since jumping off the Jaws Bridge in Edgartown Sunday night,” a State Police spokesman said in a statement.

“Weather conditions preclude dive operations today, but a Trooper assigned to the State Police-Oak Bluffs Barracks is searching the shoreline by ATV and our Air Wing will conduct an aerial search if weather allows,” the spokesman added.
