The U.S. Coast Guard has been scouring the waters of the San Francisco Bay since last night when a man reportedly jumped from a pier near Fort Mason after what appeared to be an irritating phone conversation.

According to news outlets, set-up crews for a business party event reported seeing the man jump at about 10 p.m. Rescue crews were searching for the man as of 1:30 a.m. on Thursday. The San Francisco Police Department currently has a boat crew in the water looking for the man.

Officials told reporters that the jumper was described as a white

middle-aged man with curly hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt and gray

sweatshirt. Search-and-rescue coordinators are asking for the public's help to identify the missing man.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Coast Guard at 399-3451.

  • 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.'"
