    CA - Dan Ha, 26, San Francisco, 31 October 2014

    SF Engineer Dan Ha Has Been Missing Since Halloween Night

    Dan Ha, an iOS developer at a San Francisco startup called Metromile, has been missing for almost a week. According to the CEO of the company, Dan Preston, who reached out to TechCrunch to help find his employee, Ha went home sick on Thursday afternoon and no one has seen or heard from him since Friday night, October 31, at 8 pm. Ha reportedly left work at 2 p.m. on Thursday and then emailed in sick at 10 a.m. Friday morning. The last anyone has seen or heard from him was the night of Halloween, when his roommate saw him rushing out of the house with a wallet and no bags, wearing a red hoodie. Ha lives in the SOMA district, near Brannan and 8th St. His family and friends are searching for him, calling hospitals, jails, etc. and filing a missing persons report with the San Francisco Police Department.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Strange. I used to work exactly in the area he was last seen. There was a lot going on that night, between Halloween, people celebrating the Giants, and Critical Mass (monthly bike ride through the city that I don't THINK goes through SOMA, but you know, people wind up at the bars afterwards, etc.).

    The area of SOMA between where he lives and works changes block by block, and the blocks are looong. There are some pretty bad spots, some places that seem almost desolate, especially at night, some clubs and bars. During the day it's busy with all kinds of people, plus the many tech workers from all the startups there. Hope he just decided to get some sort of private help if he needed it, or visit someone, or be alone for a bit.

    Young iOS Developer Disappears in San Francisco
    Friends and family members are looking for 26-year-old Dan Ha who vanished in San Franicsco on Halloween. Ha, a Stanford graduate, is an iOS developer at a local startup called Metromile. Sharon Heiny works with Ha and tells us that he left work early on Thursday with a headache. The following morning, Ha emailed his boss saying he was going to work from home. His roommate was the last to see him at about 8 p.m. He was rushing out of the house with a wallet and no bag. That was the last anyone has seen or heard from him, Heiny says.

    Handsome guy! Sounds like a responsible person, not someone who would willingly take off. I really hope he's ok.

    Is it just me or has there been a handful of 20 something male tech workers in the SF area gone missing in recent years?? Is it a very stressful field of work?

    Some of these men have been recovered. The last two Paulo and Derrick have been found.

    The Bay Area seems like a prime spot if you're going to go missing. Fairly decent weather most of the year, large homeless population, year round tourist destination. Easy to hide in that mass of people. It's also the unfortunately home to the second most used suicide structure, the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Yeah, I wouldn't say there's an alarming number of tech workers here who go missing - but definitely an alarming amount of young men who have gone missing, especially in SF. They're saying he's taken off for L.A. before -- I hope he did something like that. Also, there are SO many cameras in the area - I hope they're all being checked!

    FAMILY HELPS SEARCH FOR MISSING SAN FRANCISCO SOFTWARE ENGINEER
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The family of a missing San Francisco man traveled from Canada to join in the search for him.

    Dan Ha, 26, was last seen leaving his South of Market apartment on Halloween.

    His parents are devastated and are staying in their son's apartment hoping they find something in there that offers them a clue where he might be.

    Friends have posted thousands of flyers offering a $500 reward for information that helps find him.

    "I miss him so much. Please help us to find Daniel," mother Ruth Ha said.

    Ruth sobbed as she held on tight to a family photo. She's heartbroken her 26-year-old son has not been found.

    Dan has been missing since October 31 and was last seen near his apartment on Brannan and Fourth streets in San Francisco's SoMa neighborhood.

    So sad It looks as though Dan's body was found in the Bay yesterday. Coroner hasn't confirmed, but family says clothes and ID are a match.

    I was really hoping the outcome would be different. I work a few blocks away from where Dan went missing and his face is everywhere! He had a truly dedicated and loving group of friends and family.

    Weirdly, people ending up in the Bay happens more than it should. It isn't necessarily a suicide, either, or even foul play. The waterfront areas near 8th and Brannan (assuming that's where he fell in) are industrial so there's little or nothing dividing the pedestrian ways from the water. It's not like the Embarcadero touristy area where there guardrails.
