REDDING, Calif. -

Redding Police have confirmed the teen who fell from a bluff over the weekend is 16-year-old Ryen Anno.

It happened around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Officers said he apparently fell from the bluffs that overlook the Sacramento River at the south end of Palisades Avenue off Hilltop Drive.                

Rescuers performed CPR but Anno didn't survive.

Officers said they believe he had been there with a group of friends. They do not suspect foul play and said it appears to be a tragic accident.
  
They said Anno may have been drinking alcohol that night, but that they have to wait for toxicology test results to be sure. Those will take a week or two to come back.
