According to her family, a private investigator has followed up on dozens of tips, but none have led to West’s whereabouts. Camera footage has been reviewed and interviews have been conducted among West’s friends and acquaintances, but there are no leads.
“We know that there was a lot of pedestrian, car and bicycle traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge the morning Sydney disappeared.
