SF student missing after ‘impulse trip’

A San Francisco student has been missing for nearly a week after what his brother described as an “erratic” trip from the Bay Area to Southern California.

Christopher Liang was last heard from on Feb. 28, hours after he rented a car and started his trip from San Francisco to Irvine, his brother Jerry wrote in an Instagram post on Thursday. Around 5 p.m., Christopher said he was in the central California town of Firebaugh, Jerry said.

But since then Christopher hasn’t been in contact with anyone – and has missed lessons and the return window of his rental car, a white Tesla Model Y with license plate number 8RNC906. It’s unclear which college Christopher attends, but in a photo shared by Jerry, he’s wearing a University of San Francisco sweatshirt.

“Since then his phone has been inaccessible and social media inactive,” Jerry wrote on Instagram in a post that has since received nearly 7,000 likes. “He broke off plans he had made with friends in Irvine.” (He did not immediately respond to a request for comment from SFGATE.)


Jerry also said the “erratic nature of this trip”, combined with his brother’s “mental health issues”, “has made our family extremely concerned for his safety”.

To further aggravate Jerry’s concern, he writes, the San Francisco police are not taking on Christopher’s case. Jerry is pushing for people to tweet the police with the hashtag #FindChrisLiang, saying “it’s been days and the SF police haven’t taken the case yet.” A San Francisco police spokesperson said the department was unaware of the case and a police report has been filed with Irvine police.

“I am at my wit’s end and am now asking the public for help,” Jerry concluded.
