Teen girl missing after leaping into Thompson River to evade police

Kamloops Mounties continue efforts to find a teenaged girl who escaped arrest and plunged into the Thompson River in the early morning hours of Thursday.

Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said the incident began at about 2 a.m. when police were alerted to a report of a stolen bicycle.

The bike was recovered and RCMP later used a dog to locate a young female suspect, found hiding beneath a dock on the river beside Royal Avenue on the North Shore.

“The girl was subsequently arrested in connection with the bicycle theft,” Shelkie said in a statement.

“During her arrest, the girl escaped custody from police and entered the river prior to being placed in handcuffs.”

The girl was seen swimming toward Rabbit Island.

Shelkie said the Kamloops Fire Rescue boat was called out and used a thermal imaging camera in the search. Police are continuing the search, using the police dog service, air support and Kamloops Search and Rescue.

The Independent Investigations Office, an agency that investigates police-related deaths or harm, has been notified and is monitoring, Shelkie said.
