Authorities in Maine are searching for a skydiving instructor whose student landed without him Thursday afternoon in Lebanon.

Police said state troopers, game wardens, and forestry personnel are concentrating their search around the Skydive New England area.

The incident happened at about 2 p.m. and was reported by the student, who told authorities he had been involved in a tandem jump and landed safely.

Police told the Portland Press Herald they don't know how the pair became separated or if the instructor may have had a backup parachute.
