On Sunday, volunteer groups widened their search for a San Francisco teenager who has been missing for nearly two weeks now. The 19-year-old was last seen visiting a former high school teacher at 150 Oak Street in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 21st. After speaking to his father on the phone in the afternoon, he said he was catching the bus to “the park.” An hour later, his phone went dead, and he has not been seen or heard from since.
What makes this disappearance especially worrying is that the teen suffered a traumatic brain injury last year, and is still recovering. At first, police believed the “ping” of the teen’s last cell phone call was at Baker Beach, but according to reconfigured information, it actually came from the east end of Golden Gate Park.
The boy’s father has followed other leads, searching parts of Sonoma and Marin counties based on information that his son may have gotten into a car. The teen is described as a slim male of mixed Asian and Caucasian descent, with brown hair and brown eyes, and braces. He is 5’5” and weights about 120 pounds, and was last seen wearing a gray North Face hooded rain jacket with blue jeans. If you think you may have seen this person, call San Francisco police Sgt. Ann MacKenzie at (415) 734-3268.
