Fernie Search & Rescue, Fernie Fire, BCAS and the RCMP were involved in a search for a possible drowning on the Elk River on Monday afternoon.
A witness driving over the West Fernie Bridge saw a teenage boy jump from the guardrail into the river and was confident that she had not seen the boy re-emerge.
The river was searched extensively under the bridge and downstream from the jump site, but no body was seen, and to date no
missing persons report has been filed.
A follow-up call has been made the RCMP for further details.
