Federal authorities say Marshall McMains Goldberg, the California man charged with kidnapping his elderly mother from her home in Ashland, Ore., could be hiding out in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In May, a Grand Jury indicted Goldberg, 55, on charges that he kidnapped his 85-year-old mother, Doris, who has been labeled as "endangered" because she suffers from Alzheimer's.

Oregon authorities believe he took his mother and left the state -- and was possibly headed to California.

"He has known acquaintances in the Bay Area,"  FBI Portland Division spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele told reporters.

He is described as a white man, 5 foot 9, weighing

160 to 165 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes and might be

wearing glasses. Doris Goldberg is described as a white woman, about 5 foot 1 and weighing 135 pounds. She has white hair

and blue eyes.

The FBI suspects Marshall Goldberg may be driving a 1996 gold

Oldsmobile four-door sedan with the California license plate 3SZY023.

  • 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.'"
