Police in San Francisco are trying to locate Christopher Woitel, a 50-year-old man who has been reported missing.
CCTV footage shows Christopher Woitel entering his apartment on January 8.
The 50-year-old was captured entering the front door and walking to his Mission District apartment with a bottle of wine.Â AccordingÂ to KPIX 5 News, Woitel spoke to his family on the following day, January 9. Since then, however, nobody has seen or heard from him. Although he was recorded walking into his apartment building, there is no footage of Woitel ever leaving it. On January 13, the manâs mother alerted the San Francisco Police that he had gone missing. Unfortunately, police and private investigators could not locate Woitel as they found his apartment empty with no signs of foul play and the chain on the front door still engaged, UNILADÂ reported. Speaking to KPIX 5 News, Chris Woitelâs sister Lara Haben commented:
Thereâs been no activity. Heâs not been in his apartment. Thereâs no activity on his bank [account]. Weâre very anxious to find him.
The manâs family traveled to San Francisco to help search for him.
The last time Woitel contacted the family, he left a strange message to his niece.
AccordingÂ to Mission Local, the man sent the following message: âPlease tell Lara to check her messages. Itâs urgent.â Although his sister had tried to call him after this, she had received no answer. It is important to note that Woitel had apparently been acting âstrange and paranoidâ, UNILAD further reported. The man had been obsessing over the January 6 Capitol riots and writing unusual posts on social media. In addition to this, he had asked for money so that he could escape to the mountains and replace a phone that he had lost. His family had checked whether he had actually escaped to the mountains but, according to friends who owned property there, Woitel was nowhere to be found.
Christopher Woitel is a 5â10â tall white male with brown hair, brown eyes, and weighing about 170 lbs. San Francisco Police Departmentâs Missing Persons Unit has asked for the publicâs help. If you see this man, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
