At-Risk #Missing: Matthew Wastrodowski, 32 - San Francisco, California

[At-Risk Missing: Matthew Wastrodowski, 32 - San Francisco, California]

San Francisco police are asking the public's help in finding , a Mission District resident who has been missing since Dec. 7.

The disappearance occurred the same day that Wastrodowski, who had moved to San Francisco from Portland a few years ago, had called his parents in Orange County asking that they head north at once and bring him home. He was last seen about 1 p.m. that day at Clay and Walnut streets near the Presidio.

According to the police, the missing man is white with blue eyes, blond hair and a beard. He is 5'10" and around 140 pounds. At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing black glasses, blue pants, blue shoes, a plaid shirt and blue jacket — but his jacket, shirt, wallet and keys were found later in the Presidio.

About a year ago, Wastrodowski was treated for depression-related illness and put on medication, according to his mother,Patricia Wastrodowski.

"In July, he got it into his head that he was feeling better and wasn't going to take it anymore," Patricia Wastrodowski said Wednesday. "The last two or three weeks, apparently he had become delusional."

Anyone who might have seen Matthew Wastrodowski or has information is asked to call police at 911 or (415) 575-4444. They also can send a phone message to TIP411 and begin it with "SFPD." Among the places where he often spent time are Dolores Park and the PhoneBooth Bar at 1398 S. Van Ness Ave. at 25th Street.
