Investigators with the Chattanooga Fire Department, Chattanooga Police Department and UTC Police are asking for the public's help in locating a person of interest in relation to the bomb threats that have occurred at UTC. Anyone who can help identify the person in this photograph, or has any information on this man's whereabouts, is urged to call the police department at 423-698-2525.

UTC police on Friday released a photo of a man investigators say is a person of interest in connection with a string of recent bomb threats at the university.

The university police, along with the Chattanooga Fire Department and Chattanooga Police Department, want the public's help in finding this person, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga officials said in a news release.

A string of bomb threats this week disrupted semester final exams. Dozens of students will spend today taking tests they should have completed earlier this week, but academic buildings were evacuated after two bomb threats.

There were two threats this week, one last week and one in October.

University officials and state and federal agencies are investigating the threats.

Anyone who can identify the person in the photograph or who has information about his whereabouts is urged to call the police department at 423-698-2525.
