    This is a horrible sign. The Sunshine Skyway bridge is probably the biggest suicide magnet in Florida. I hope that is not what happened to Dustin.

    If it was an attempted jump he would have automatically been baker acted. Did the family check on that?

    Do you mean 3-5-2020? I see some comments and info regarding this date that may be attributed to this young man. At the time, they would have been able to see him jump. I’d be really surprised if they didn’t have video of it.

    Do you mean March 5th? What does this mean, are there cameras that would definitely record it?

    I hope this man is somewhere okay.

    Body not found.

    I wish they would list what he was wearing. The old bridge is now a fishing pier with bathrooms. People fish 24/7 and someone could have reeled in an article of clothing, shoe, etc. not realizing it belonged to him. There were reports of a jumper which means a driver, a person in a boat or someone on the old bridge saw it happen. That would be in addition to the bridge cams and any vehicle dash cams. This seems so very solvable. I hope his family finds peace with his choice.

    Dustin Pham – The Charley Project


    Details of Disappearance
    Pham was last seen in St. Petersburg, Florida on March 5, 2020. He has never been heard from again. At 3:45 a.m. his car was found abandoned at the top of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. A witness reported having seen a person jumping from the bridge about two hours earlier. A search of the water turned up no sign of a body. Pham's case remains unsolved.

    @mlhenn if he would've jumped do we know what way the water would've carried him?

    @DS2021 , I think this is a very good question!

    Unfortunately, I’m probably the least likely WS member to answer that. :confused: I have very, very little knowledge of currents, high/low tides, various water conditions/data with bodies of water...(not a lot of major waterways where I live in southeast AR).

    •Here’s a link that has various info/data such as currents, water depths, etc for Tampa Bay under the Skyway Bridge. It may be of some help.

    Curious...
    Does this bridge have cameras?
    If so, are they monitored?

    I'm not sure all the cameras are functional, or maybe not storing the data. I'm 99% sure he jumped, appears he missed the rocks and went into the water, but at this point he will likely not be found. I do follow the Skyway bridge site and have yet to see them be able to access camera data outside of observers of jumpers. Very sad
