The site around a sinkhole that opened up under a Seffner home, trapping a 36-year-old man, is "extremely unstable," said Hillsborough County adminstrator Mike Merrill at a press conference Friday night.

Jeffrey Bush became trapped in a sinkhole overnight when the bedroom of his house collapsed into the ground. Bush is presumed dead.

"My heart goes out to the family whose had a terrible loss in this tragedy. And my heart goes out to the neighbors," Merrill said. "And on behalf of Hillsborough County I want everyone to know we are doing everything we can to find the man, Mr. Bush but we want to do it safely."

Merrill said the sinkhole is "not typical" and continues to evolve. Crews with Bracken Engineering said the sinkhole has grown to 20- to 30-feet wide and 20-feet deep.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the sinkhole opened inside the home in the 200 block of Faithway Drive in Seffner. Authorities and engineers remain at the scene.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue officials had to halt rescue attempts earlier Friday due to the dangerous nature of the sinkhole.

Engineers are still assessing the stability of the sinkhole with ground penetrating sonar equipment.
