I am local to the bay area as obvious, but its upsetting me there is no major coverage from media like NBC Bay Area and others. This is not normal
Thank you for sharing.
Are there any off-grid communities in the Bay Area or surrounding areas?
Bolinas community does not love the younger generation coming into their small town..Bolinas is one community that comes to mind. The turnoff sign to get there from the main road regularly disappears soon after the county puts up a new one. She would have had to get across the bridge though, which I suppose could have been done on foot but I think that surveillance would have picked that up.

She is considered at-risk, according to authorities.
There were no new updates on her disappearance as of Monday afternoon, according to Sgt. Michael Andraychak of the San Francisco Police Department, the lead agency on the case.
For decades Bolinas been a very small, insular coastal community, notably home to many artists and writers. Residents place great value on community, and on and preserving their iconcolastic way of life there. They don't want tourists, commercial endeavors, growth, or (usually) newcomers -- once those things come, you can never really go back.Why?
Is there a possibility that Syd could be in Pleasanton?Vigil for missing teen set for Thursday in downtown Pleasanton

this is really eye opening on her struggles and out look in life. It shows that she really sought out help
I would really love to know who last saw her or had contact with her & what the nature of the communication was. Had she been distraught? Acting bizarrely? Her normal self? I assume LE has this information and is guarding it closely for a reason, but what is the reason?
If Sydney is reading this: don’t worry about calling your parents or anyone else
I have to respectfully disagree. We have cases here where parents have described not knowing what happened to their child as unending torture.
Yes an adult is allowed to start a new life and doesn't owe anyone anything. But ideally you just let them know you're okay. Write a letter. Of course you don't have to call.
