ATTN San Francisco: My 15-year-old niece went missing yesterday afternoon. If anyone has seen her around San Francisco in the last 20 hours, or knows ANYTHING, please call me immediately. She was last seen December 3 at 3 PM wearing cheetah print leggings, (possibly) around Powell Station. Her name is Alyson and she means the world to me. Come on, Internet, bring her home safe

  • Alyson

San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said a juvenile named Alyson was reported missing yesterday; however, he's trying to confirm information about this case.

Olson says on her Facebook page that the family has talked to security at the Westfield Mall, which is one of her main hangouts, near where she was seen last, as well as the foot patrol around Powell Street.

The girl's phone has been dead since yesterday. "She normally checks in, no matter what. This is out of character," Olson said on Facebook.

If you've seen her, call San Francisco Police at 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 followed by SFPD.

  • 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.'"
