MEDIA RELEASE

Police are looking for a 30-year-old woman who either fell or jumped into the Wailuku River in Hilo on Tuesday evening (July 7, 2005).

She was identified as Desiree Proudfoot, of Hilo. Proudfoot is described as being 5-foot-4 in height, weighing about 200 pounds and having back hair and brown eyes.

Police said that when a Hilo patrol officer approached Proudfoot for an outstanding bench warrant about 6 p.m., she apparently jumped or fell into the river, where she was last seen swimming.

Responding fire rescue units searched for the woman, but the search was called off because of darkness about 7 p.m. and will resume at daybreak.
