Friends and family of 27-year-old Beau Rasmussen continued their search this morning for the Emeryville man who disappeared on Sunday after running the Bay to Breakers race.

His friends tell KTVU that they suspect he might have gone for a swim at Ocean Beach after the race since they found his clothes and identification on the shore. The strong rip tides made it a dangerous day for swimming, and lifeguards were busy rescuing seven swimmers from the water on Sunday.

His friends have scoured the beach, passing out flyers around the area, hoping their efforts will lead them to Rasmussen.

"We were sitting down. He kept walking along. We looked up and I could see him continuing to walk down JFK then toward the beach," according to one of his friends, who was the last to see him.

Less than 10 hours later, his hat, cellphone, credit cards, and passport were reportedly found near the ocean. Life guards searched the waters, and even a helicopter looked for Rasmussen, who had probably been drinking that day, his friends say.

Rasmussen is 6-foot-2, weighing 195 pounds; he has brown hair and brown eyes and he was last seen wearing jeans and an old maroon football jersey with "Chris" and the number 28 on the back, his friends told the Chron.

Anyone with information should call San Francisco police at 553-0123, the anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 with "SFPD" at the beginning of the message.

  • 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.'"
