Caitlin McMahon, Missing and Suicidal Teen, Desperately Sought By Cops

Posted By on Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 11:15 AM

San Francisco police have turned to the public for help in tracking down missing 15-year-old Caitlin McMahon, described as having attempted suicide "numerous" times. She left her Castro Street home yesterday evening without her prescription medication and has not been seen since.

McMahon was home for the weekend from a rehab center in Utah. In

addition to a history of suicide attempts and going without her

prescription anti-depressants, she is additionally described as a heavy drinker. She also has a couple of tattoos that should catch the eye of

any quasi-alert passer-by:

On her left forearm are the words "This Too Shall Pass." On her right

shoulder: "West Cost." That's what it says. Really.

The 5-foot-3, 130-pound girl was last seen dressed in a black leather jacket and carrying a

black-and-white checkered tote bag. She tends to hang out in "various

parks" in the city, Daly City, and Richmond. Should you see her, don't

hesitate to call the Crime Intelligence Center at (415) 553-1071.

  • 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.'"
