A poster for missing runner Philip Kreycik, who left his Berkeley home to go running at the left home to go running at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park on Saturday, July 10, and did not return. Extensive search-and-rescue efforts have failed to locate the father of two.
Eight days after missing runner Philip Kreycik was last seen, a crew of expert rappellers descended deep into a ravine at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park and emerged with scraps of a t-shirt.
But the shirt, much like earlier, equally fruitless clues, yielded no answers in the sprawling search that has frustrated authorities and mystified those who know the Harvard-educated father of two.
For detectives used to resolving missing person cases within hours or days, the 37-year old’s disappearance has seemingly defied logic.
“I can’t even speculate on this one — it’s very, very odd,” said Sgt. Aaron Fountain, investigations chief for the Pleasanton Police Department.
