Friends and family members are looking for 26-year-old Dan Ha who vanished in San Franicsco on Halloween. 

Ha, a Stanford graduate, is an iOS developer at a local startup called Metromile.

Sharon Heiny works with Ha and tells us that he left work early on Thursday with a headache. The following morning, Ha emailed his boss saying he was going to work from home.

His roommate was the last to see him at about 8 p.m. He was rushing out of the house with a wallet and no bag. 

That was the last anyone has seen or heard from him, Heiny says. 

"He was supposed to be at a work event over the weekend and he didn't show up," Heiny tells us. "It's out of character for him."

Yesterday, his co-workers filed a missing persons report with the SFPD; they've since been in contact with his family who lives in British Columbia. Friends are now coordinating search parties through SoMa where Ha lives with his roommate, Dominique Chainee.

If you have any information about Ha's whereabouts, please contact the SFPD at 415-553-1373, and reference this case no: 140937521.

  • 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.'"
