Police: Reports man jumped off bridge unfounded

CHANNAHON – Reports that a man may have jumped off the U.S. Route 6 bridge into the DuPage River appear to be unfounded, according to local authorities.

About 5 p.m. Sunday two motorists stopped when they thought they saw a man jump off the bridge into the DuPage River, Channahon Police Chief Jeff Wold said.

When authorities looked in the water, they saw no sign of the man. Channahon, Minooka, Wilmington and Troy fire departments sent personnel, along with water rescue boats and equipment, to the location, Wold said.

Although the search continued for several hours, no one was found. As they searched, additional witnesses said they though a group of teenagers were videotaping from the west side of the river, Wold added.

As of 8:45 p.m. Sunday, there were no missing person reports, Wold said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Channahon Police Department at 815-467-5152.
