    CA - Joseph Weber, 28, San Francisco, 24 Nov 2014

    Joseph Weber


    De Anza student and Iraq War veteran missing
    Joseph Weber, a 28-year-old De Anza College student and Iraq War veteran, was reported missing by his family on Nov. 26 and has been missing for over 12 days. Weber left his home in Sunnyvale on Nov. 24 and the California Highway Patrol found his car in the Golden Gate Bridge employee parking lot on Nov. 27, according to a KTVU report. He served two tours in Baghdad as a military police officer and his family told KTVU that he hadn’t been the same since returning home. “He was never really able to forgive himself, I think,” Weber’s sister Linnea told KTVU. “He suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and it affected almost every aspect of his life after that.” Robert Ovetz, Weber’s political science teacher at De Anza this quarter, said Weber was a “very engaged, passionate student.” Ovetz said Weber was interested in understanding the government and the role he played in Iraq.

    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."

    "Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Captain Jeff Hunter says, "At that point we have CHP check surveillance cameras. There are images of him on the bridge with a crowd of people," Hunger said. While there are no signs he jumped, but no signs he walked off the bridge either. He has not been seen since."

    This doesn't sound good. I hope he will be found soon.

    Wait, he was last seen on the GG bridge and they have no signs that he walked off? This really doesn't sound good. And I've never heard of this case and I live in the south bay... how sad

    Well, maybe/maybe not. There seems to be conflicting information on if there is or isn't signs that he walked off the bridge. From the google site linked off the FB group page:
    On Monday 11/24/2014 he left home. A person of his description was seen leaving his car at the north side of Golden Gate Bridge, and then walking onto the bridge at about 3PM that day AND HIM OR A PERSON MATCHING HIS DESCRIPTION WAS SEEN ON VIDEO EXITING THE BRIDGE. His phone was last on at approximately 8PM that evening, location not known. And that was the last information we have about him.

    This seems like a very sad case - for the family who are obviously worried sick and wondering where Joseph may be, and for Joseph who until he disappeared, seemed to face many uphill challenges and disappointments to try and better himself and the world.

    I hope someone comes forward with some news or an insight as to what might have happened and why Joseph Weber is missing.

    Just found this photo -

    Missing Vetrans Home Page:
    http://www.missingveterans.com/1998/john-smith-south/

    This is a picture of Joseph with his shirt off - these are very distinctive tattoos - I haven't seen a thread which describes the actual wording -
    I will look on the web to see if there is any information somewhere else ...
    But does anyone have any idea of what this says? Maybe we can piece this together?

    He also has tattoos on the underneath of both arm biceps - and possibly on his hands? (cant tell if they are shadows or not on the hands...)

    There is also another photo of Joseph here sitting at a table.

    What I find distinctive above this photo below and the photo in the above post is the necklaces that Joseph is wearing.
    It looks like a bone carving which has a silver/metal tip finding for the chain to go through (an animal or bird head) - there is a carved man in the centre of the carving.
    I have zoomed in and screencapped the necklace to try and see it better...

    It reminds me of the Maori bone Hooks - or possibly a piece designed overseas - but I wonder if it is something which has some significance to it for Joseph - and maybe it was a gift or something he purchased as a token of safety or luck.

    I wonder if he was wearing this when he disappeared?

    I wondering if anyone thinks that the bottom line of text in the tattoo on Josephs abdomen is another language like latin - I even thought it was Sindarin or Tengwar (Elvish) when I first saw it, but I think it is the Gothic font and the closeness of the lettering...

    Any thoughts?
