Rescue crews kept watch on the pond with equipment remaining at the pond all night.

Denville Police were holding out hope that Arcoleo may have simply left the area on foot to take a run and then been injured. News 12 New Jersey reports the firefighter's car was found parked at the pond with his belongings inside.
