Family and friends are appealing for help in locating a 22-year-old Filipino-American who has been missing since Friday, November 23, in San Francisco, California.

Gavin Octaviano was last seen at the north parking lot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

According to his family and footage from security cameras, Octaviano left his vehicle and started walking toward the bridge at approximately 5:20 in the afternoon that day.

Balitang America spoke with Octaviano’s sister Veena, who speaks highly of him.

“Gavin to me, as a sister, I see him as, of course, the perfect brother. He’s the most selfless, kind-hearted person you can ever meet in your life. He touched everyone that he meets,” she said.

She added that her family, her brother’s friends, and their internet followers have been looking for him.

“We made tons of flyers. We’re reaching out. Yesterday, we went to the Sausalito community and we’re walking in the rain passing out flyers to the local mom and pop shops and the restaurants,” Veena said.

She appeals to her brother to come home.

“We all miss you so much. I know you’re not hurting us on purpose and if you need time now that’s perfectly fine but come home to us, and you will be welcomed with open arms. Just come back to us. We love you so much,” she said.

Octaviano was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, a black and blue plaid flannel top, dark blue jeans, and black and white Nike shoes.

Anyone with information on Octaviano’s whereabouts, please contact 415-672-8929, or contact the San Francisco or Daly City police departments.
