Mission RCMP and Abbotsford Police were called out to the Mission bridge this morning (May 26) at about 8 a.m. after reports came in of a woman on the south side of the bridge.

While no details have been confirmed by the RCMP, reports indicate the woman took off her jacket and threw it off the bridge.

Another report indicates that she was not alone. A male was also seen on the bridge, on the north side, but police were not able to locate him.

Traffic has returned to normal.
