Bus Report #679

Monday, from my window seat on the 22 Fillmore, I noticed the same flier taped to light poles all up and down 16th Street, from the Mission to Potrero Hill.

I got out of the bus at my usual stop and walked up to the first flier I saw, on a streetlight by the bus stop.

It was a MISSING poster for a woman named Amanda Guevara. [UPDATE - Amanda has been found!]

I've been thinking about her all week and hoping that she turns up, or calls home, lets someone know she is all right.

And then I wonder about other missing people.

Jerry Tang disappeared years ago. A faded flier still hangs in the window of the old Busvans building on Clement Street, pleading for his return.

A young man, I can't recall his name, a blond boy smiling in the photo on his MISSING poster, in the window of a cafe on California Street.
Last seen on his way to the bridge.

I look for them in crowds, on the bus, and hope for them, because that's all I can do.
