Police are investigating an apparent suicide after the body of a woman in her mid-30s was found Wednesday beneath the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena.

Pasadena police Lt. John Mercado said they received a call at about 11:40 a.m. about a worker in the 100 block of North Arroyo Blvd. finding the body beneath the bridge.

“Subsequently, we received a phone call from some parents saying that their daughter has been missing, and gave us a description of her car that we found in the area,” Mercado said. “When the coroner was on scene, we were able to confirm that the victim was their daughter.”

Mercado said they did not receive any reports of anyone threatening to jump off the bridge before the body was discovered.

The woman’s identity has not been made public at this time.

Separately, shortly after this incident, Pasadena City College officials confirmed a suicide incident in one of the college’s parking structures, where a former PCC student was found lifeless in a vehicle parked in the area.
