Investigation Continues into Death of California Man

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  One man says he saw Scott Jarvis moments before he went missing.  Gerardo Reyes says he called police last Monday night, immediately after he saw a man hanging over the cable bridge between Pasco and Kennewick.

Reyes returned to the bridge minutes later, only to find the man missing.  On Saturday police recovered a body from the Columbia River near Two Rivers Park in Finley.  Reyes says he's certain that it's the same man he saw hanging over the cable bridge.

"When I told them about the description and what he looked like, what he was wearing, the mustache and the hair, it fit the description of the picture they had," says Reyes.  "So when they called me in to look at it, it was him." 

KNDU contacted Pasco Police, but they will not comment on the matter.  Kennewick police and Pasco police were on the scene looking for a body in the water after Reyes called, but they didn't find anything.  The autopsy is set for Monday evening.
