Family of Missing Black Teen in California Says Police Are More Concerned About a Missing Dog

Jonathan Bandabaila, a 19-year old Black teen from Oakland, has been missing since May, and his family is expressing their disappointment with the Oakland Police Department. They allegedly managed to send out a search notice about a missing dog within 2 days, but it took almost 4 months to issue a similar search notice for their loved one.

Jonathan was reportedly last seen on May 3rd after he left his home to attend a soccer tournament. His car was found the next day parked in the westbound direction of the San Mateo Bridge.

Police also recovered some of his belongings inside the car, such as his soccer uniform, gears, and clothes he planned to wear to an upcoming formal event.

His brother, Harrison Bandabaila, described Jonathan as an “amazing person” and said they had no idea why he would just disappear.

“I don’t think he ran away. There were no signs of depression or mental illness. He was happy,” he told East Bay Times.
