The anxious search for Allison Bayliss, the 15-year-old missing teen, came to a tragic ending today after police reportedly said she jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge in an apparent suicide.

Bayliss, a San Ramon Valley High School sophomore, was last seen on Monday at about 8 a.m. at her school locker. Her father found a note by her computer later that evening, which led police to San Francisco's Crissy Field, where they found her purple and black Diamonback bike.

Her father, David Bayliss, and friends spent the last 48 hours scouring the waterfront, looking for their "Alliygator."

According to the California Highway Patrol, Bayliss walked onto the Golden Gate Bridge on Monday. Although police hinted at suicide, they have not yet confirmed it. However, media outlets have reported that the girl left behind a suicide note for her father.

"We have information that came to us in our search and rescue efforts

yesterday as well as our investigative efforts that indicate that

Allison walked out onto the Golden Gate Bridge shortly after 10 a.m. on

Monday morning. It does not appears that Allison walked off the Golden

Gate Bridge," CHP Captain Amy Mangan told reporters. "Our investigative effort now is moving

toward a possible suicide."

Mangan said there are cameras on both sides of the bridge, however, she wouldn't say whether there was footage of any incident related to

Allison, KTVU reports.

A candlelight vigil will be held tonight at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Danville Congregational Church at 989 San Ramon Valley Blvd. in Danville.

  • 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.'"
