The man reported to have jumped stood about six feet tall and had two or three days’ worth of facial hair. He was wearing dark-coloured pants and a bright blue hoodie. Prior to reportedly jumping off the bridge, the man was acting distraught, flailing his arms and appeared impaired and agitated.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen the man acting suspiciously on the bridge, or anybody who may have information in identifying the man, to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
