KAMLOOPS - RCMP are investigating the report of a missing man at Riverside Park.

Earlier this afternoon Mounties received a call about a missing person. Officers still attending the scene at Riverside Park say the man hasn't been missing long and his car is still parked in the lot near the tennis courts. They have two members stationed by the car in case the man returns.

A sweep of the river and surrounding area earlier haven't offered any leads. RCMP say while they are concerned for the man's safety, they are always concerned for safety when a missing persons report is called in. They say there is nothing so far to indicate the man is in the river.
