Police are seeking a man who told a gas station clerk he saw someone jump into the Bronx River late Sunday, cops said.

The man did not call 911, but told the clerk working near the Westchester Avenue Bridge in Soundview that he had witnessed the suicide around 11:45 p.m., officials said. The clerk at Nor-Bronx River Service Station called authorities.

When police searched the scene, they found a suicide note in a bottle — but no body, cops said.
