SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A 27-year-old Oakland man who was last seen finishing the Bay to Breakers race Sunday was reported missing Monday.
Beau Rasmussen, 27, became separated from his friends around noon, and about eight hours later, his belongings were found by a passerby on Ocean Beach across from the Beach Chalet restaurant, said Stephanie Serbe, his friend and co-worker at San Ramon-based EDF Renewable Energy.
The company has closed its office Monday and on Tuesday. Co-workers were searching the area for any signs of Rasmussen, Serbe said. She said Rasmussen’s parents also flew in from Oregon on Monday night and are joining other friends and family in the search.
“He’s a very responsible guy at work,” Serbe said. “Definitely something is wrong.”
U.S. Park police assisted with the search on Monday but did not find anything, agency spokesman Howard Levitt said.
A U.S. Coast Guard crew also flew a helicopter over the shoreline on Monday but did not find anything either, Coast Guard Ensign Corinne Gaines said.
A flyer posted around the Ocean Beach area indicates that Rasmussen’s friends think he might have gone swimming in the ocean after the race.
He is described as 27 years old, about 6 feet 2 inches tall and 195 pounds.
Anyone with information about Rasmussen’s whereabouts is asked to call his friends at (925) 961-7397 or (510) 999-0852.
