SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) - The family and friends of a San
Francisco man who disappeared nearly a year ago plan to hold a
vigil Wednesday evening in Golden Gate Park to keep the search
alive for the husband and father of two young children.
Jerry Tang was last seen Nov. 29, 2005 leaving the family's Upper
Haight neighborhood home, said his wife, Joyce Tang.
The candlelight vigil will start at 6:30 p.m. at the Panhandle
section of the park, on the western side of Masonic Street between
Oak and Fell streets, Tang said.
A wide network of friends, family and sympathetic strangers have
kept up efforts to locate Tang, 40, with efforts ranging from
distributing flyers to setting up a Web site.
Tang said her husband suffered a stroke a few years ago and was
told by doctors to take medication daily to prevent seizures.
The musician Marcy Levy will perform at Biscuits and Blues at
401 Mason St. Dec. 8 in a concert to help raise awareness about
Jerry Tang, she said.
The concert is organized by a group called Squeaky Wheel, which
helps highlight different missing persons cases, Tang said.
"Jerry really liked music. He plays piano and keyboard.
The vigil will be mostly a quiet event, but the concert is blues
and it's more of a celebration of what Jerry liked in life,"
"We want people to still be aware, to keep looking. We want
people to know he's still missing," she said.
Joyce Tang's Web site for her husband is at http://www.findjerry.org.
