Emergency crews unable to substantiate report of person in water near Overlanders Bridge

No sign of person in river

A report of a person falling through the ice on the Thompson River last weekend turned out to be false, police say.

Emergency crews were called to an area just west of the Overlanders Bridge just before 9:30 p.m. on Friday for a report of a person in the water.

Kamloops RCMP Const. Crystal Evelyn said Mounties walking the beach and using infrared were unable to find any sign of anyone walking out onto the ice.
