The Kelowna mall was evacuated Thursday night, no bomb found on scene

Police are asking for the public's help in finding any information about an incident that forced the evacuation of Kelowna's largest shopping area last night.

RCMP Const. Kris Clark say nothing suspicious was found at Orchard Park Shopping Centre after a note was left on a car indicating there was a bomb inside the building.

Police evacuated the facility at 6 p.m. PT and spent the entire night searching the area with sniffer dogs. Thirty RCMP members were involved in the operation.

Clark says considering the size of the building, the investigation remains in its infancy.
