Update 4:41 p.m.: Sgt. Michael Andraychak confirmed that foul play is not suspected in this case.

Original story 4:05 p.m.: A Brentwood family is asking for the public's help in finding 21-year-old Victoria "Torrie" Stevenson who has been missing since her boyfriend dropped her off in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood last Friday.

According to her stepfather, Michael Marden, Stevenson's boyfriend dropped her off at Market and Jones near World of Stereo for a job interview. The couple was supposed to meet up afterward, but Stevenson never showed up. Nobody has seen her or heard from her since.

Her family filed a missing person report with the San Francisco Police Department. We contacted the SFPD to get more information, and will update this story when we hear back.

Marden says Stevenson was supposedly headed to the Tenderloin for a job interview, but indicated it was possible she was there for reasons other than to seek employment. "We all know what happens down in Tenderloin, so we don't know if she was coming to hang out with the people."

"She also thinks she is street smart," Marden says. "I could see her hanging out with the wrong people and finding herself in a situation where she was in over her head."

Her family has been talking to people and businesses in the Tenderloin, some who claim they have seen Stevenson in the area before, hanging out and smoking cigarettes in front of stores; she was even known to stay at homeless shelters in the area, Marden says.

Stevenson is 5-foot-4 and 115 pounds, with long brown hair, hazel eyes, and tattoos. She was last seen wearing a black leather jacket, blue jeans, and a backpack. If anyone sees her or has any information about Stevenson, please contact her family at (925) 364-5004, or call 911.

Her family is offering a reward for her safe return.

"We just want to hear from her and try to get her home," Marden says. "We are just praying for the best."

  • 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.'"
