At a Wednesday news conference, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin implored the city’s residents to help in the search.
“I am imploring the San Francisco community to help us locate Ms. Fung, a beloved grandmother who has been missing for five days now,” he said. “My staff has offered assistance to SFPD during this investigation, and this is an urgent search that requires the help and vigilance of the public as well. We must all do everything we can to help bring Ms. Fung home quickly and safely.”
Boudin said there was no evidence that Fung has fallen victim to foul play.
“We do not know that a crime has occurred,” he said. ‘But we know that a beloved grandmother and mother is missing, and her family is anxiously awaiting her return.”

“Our grandmother is a very kind person, always smiling and loves the outdoors,” a family statement read. “Our entire family has been extremely worried since Friday. We know she’s out there. We don’t know how she is, whether she is hungry or needs help. We are pleading with everyone to please keep an eye out for her. She speaks Cantonese and Toisan. We miss her.”
She is described as 5 feet tall, weighing 90 pounds, with white hair. She was last seen wearing a red or pink puffy jacket, purple sweater, brown pants, black UGG boots and a red beanie with an LG logo.
Police said Fung is known to frequent Clement Street, the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field and the Graton and River Rock casinos.
She is considered at risk due to her age and possible medical conditions.
Police ask anyone who sees Fung to contact their local law enforcement agency with her current location and a clothing description.
If you have seen Ms. Fung or have information about her disappearance, please immediately contact Sergeant Michael Horan of the SFPD Special Victim’s Unit at 415-553-1028.MORE NEWS: UPDATE: Fire Destroys 2 Pleasant Hill Homes; Resident Still Missing, Firefighter Suffers Burns
