Attention has been recently drawn to 3 young men, all who have disappeared in San Francisco. While nothing has been said directly tying these missing men to each other, it seems odd that all 3 of them disappeared in roughly the same area, and there has been no sign of them.
On February 6th, Crishtian Hughes, who had been visiting a friend in SF’s 900 block of Capital Ave. for a few days, packed up all of his belongings and left his friends’ home, sometime between 2 am and 10 am. Now, really, who leaves, in the middle of the night, in an unfamiliar city, with no car and little money? No note for his friend, saying he had left, no call to his mother, to say where he was going. According to Crishtian’s mother, he is not the type who would disappear without letting someone know where he is. She is most concerned due to the sketchy background of the friend Crishtian was visiting, as well as the fact that he called police, rather than family, to see if his friend had made it home. If he wasn’t aware of any concerns of Crishtian’s safety, why would he call police?
And speaking of police, Crishtian’s mother also feels they have not been active enough in the search for him, listing him as a voluntarily missing person. The SFPD has even forwarded the case on to San Diego, where Crishtian is from. Did he catch is flight back? His mother doesn’t know, because her son is a mental stable adult and the airline can’t give her that information.
On May 19th, Beau Rasmussen went missing in the Golden Gate Park area, after participating in the Bay of Breakers race. He left his friends, telling them he was going to the Ocean Beach area, where is cell phone, clothes, keys, wallet, and passport were found later that day, leading some to speculate that he may have drowned. Friends of Beau and many volunteers are searching the area today, hoping for any sign of the missing man.
On May 21st, Sean Sidi disappeared, after telling his father he was taking the bus to the park, after visiting a former teacher at International High School. Like the others, he hasn’t been seen since. Sean is said to be “medically fragile, after suffering a traumatic brain injury several months ago. His family also says this is out of character for the young man, saying he rarely leaves the house for long periods of time, and always lets them know where he is.
