Police issued an alert this afternoon for a missing 17-year-old boy who was last seen leaving his father's home in San Francisco on Jan. 22.

Police say Royal Foote has not been to school since that day over a month ago. Officer Albie Esparza said the boy has no known medical conditions and is not thought to be suicidal; however, investigators have interviewed his friends and people who know him and have hit a dead end in this case.

"We've exhausted our leads, so we are asking anyone who might have seen him to call police," Esparza said.

Police described Foote as a 5-foot-7 black male, weighing 140 pounds. He has brown eyes and a

shaved head. He was last seen wearing a gray, red, and black rain jacket

and gray pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 575-4444 and 558-5508 (Missing Person Unit), or text-a-tip to

  • 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.'"
