Just before 11 p.m. on Thursday, emergency personnel responded to a report that a person may have jumped from a bridge into the Missouri River in Great Falls.

Responding agencies included the Great Falls Police Department and Great Falls Fire Rescue.

They gathered at a spot on the east side of the river between the 9th Street bridge and the old 10th Street bridge.

In addition to visual searching, the GFPD used a drone to scan the entire area around the bridges from bank to bank.

They were unable to launch a search boat because the river in that area is too icy.

As of 11:45 p.m., there was no evidence that anyone had jumped or fallen into the river.

We will update you if there is any new information.
