SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Emergency crews have stopped searching for a man who friends say may have fallen into the San Francisco Bay attending a baseball game nearby.
U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Officer Mark Leahey says the search was called off before noon Tuesday for the 27-year-old man from Woodland who was reported missing late Monday after he and a friend left the game at AT&T Park and walked to their car near Pier 32.
Police say the man apparently walked out toward the edge of the pier while the friend was checking a text message. When the friend was done about a minute later, he said he couldn’t find the man.
Fire Department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge says no foul play is apparent as crews searched for the man stretching across from the Bay Bridge to Alcatraz.
He was last seen wearing a gray baseball cap, a blue Dodgers jacket, a white T-shirt and dark blue jeans.
