The search for a missing San Francisco elderly woman continued on Wednesday when various leaders asked the public for help.
Jean Chang Kan Fung, an 84-year-old grandmother, was no longer seen around 4:00 p.m. on May 28. She lives in the Inner Richmond neighborhood but was last seen in the Marina District, the San Francisco District Attorney’s office reported.
“I beg the San Francisco community to help us find Ms. Fung, a beloved grandmother who has been missing for five days,” District Attorney Chesa Boudin said in a statement. “My co-workers offered help to SFPD during this investigation and this is an urgent search that also requires the help and vigilance of the public. We must all do everything we can to get Ms. Fung home quickly and safely. In the meantime, our victim services team will continue to offer all possible assistance to Ms. Fung’s family. “
According to police, Fung is six feet tall, weighs 90 pounds and has white hair. She was last seen wearing a red or pink puff jacket, purple sweater, brown pants, black Ugg boots, and a red hat with an “LG” logo on it.
Police said they were visiting the following areas: Clement Street, the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field, and the Graton and River Rock casinos.
Prosecutors said she was last seen Friday afternoon when California Highway Patrol officers dropped her near Safeway in the Marina District.
“We don’t know that a crime has taken place. But we do know that a beloved grandmother and mother are missing and their family is eagerly awaiting their return,” Boudin said in a statement. “I thank my staff and SFPD officials for their efforts in this case and we need help. We ask all of us to join together as San Franciscans and bring Jean Chang Kan Fung home.”
Fung’s family released the following statement:
Our grandmother is a very kind person who always smiles and loves the outdoors. Our whole family has been very worried since Friday. We know she’s out there. We don’t know how she is doing, whether she is hungry or needs help. We ask everyone to look out for her. She speaks Cantonese and Toisan. We miss her. Thank you to everyone who helped with this search and continues to help. Our family has always been their top priority. Because of the language barrier, we believe she feels helpless and scared. Please help us reunite.
When you see Fung, you will be asked to call 911 immediately.
