The Army Corps of Engineers released the video in the hope the public will help identify the man.

“We don’t know exactly what he was doing or why he was there,” said Erik Petersen, Operations Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

“We believe he was taking pictures of the facility. Why? We're not sure," said Petersen.

PSU terrorism expert Gary Perlstein agreed there was reason to be concerned, noting that the man was camouflaged and had to intentionally climbed over barbed wire fencing to reach the spot where he was seen on surveillance cameras.

The Army Corps is offering $1000.00 reward for information leading to the man. Anyone with tips is asked to call: 1-866-413-7970.
