On Monday, Danville police found missing teen Allison Bayliss' bicycle locked up at a bike stand in San Francisco's Crissy Field. Bayliss was last seen on Monday at 8 a.m. near her locker at San Ramon Valley High School where she is a sophomore.

Media outlets are reporting that the 15-year-old had left a note near her computer which led the search into San Francisco this morning. Her father, David Bayliss, searched two miles of the waterfront before finding her purple and black Diamondback mountain bike at a stand.

"We found a note on her computer with directions to this location," her father told reporters. "I have asked local law enforcement to bring all available resources to

look for her. We are awaiting a helicopter and water support

to look in the water. Other than that we are just hoping and praying

that Allison is alive."

Meanwhile, friends and strangers have created a buzz on Facebook about "Alliy's" disappearance. A Facebook page called Find Alliy Bayliss was created shortly after the teen was reported missing. More than 7,000 people have joined the page, leaving messages of support.

"I'm sorry if you don't know her well, but please ... we can't lose Alliygator," one message reads.

Bayliss was last seen wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans. She is 5-foot-8 and weighs 130 pounds. She has blonde hair and she was wearing it in a ponytail.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
