A $10,000 reward has been put up by the family of a UC Berkeley freshman who was last seen in September in an attempt to acquire more information regarding the whereabouts of their loved one.
The family of 19-year-old Sydney Kaitlyn West last saw their loved one on September 30, 2020, at around 6:45 a.m. walking near the Golden Gate Bridge.
Dozens of tips were followed up by a private investigator, according to West’s family; however, none led to where might have been. Officials have conducted interviews of West’s friends and acquaintances and reviewed video footage but found no evidence of the location of the teenage girl.
“We know that there was a lot of pedestrian, car, and bicycle traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge the morning Sydney disappeared. Someone may have seen something — any piece of information could help lead us to Sydney,” a joint statement by the victim’s parents, Kimberly and Jay West, said.
The teenage girl spent her childhood in the Pleasanton area but last settled in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Her family described her as a 5″ 10′ girl, weighing around 130 pounds. She had blue eyes, light brown hair, and wore corrective glasses.
West’s family said she might have worn dark leggings, blue Vans shoes, and a teal sweatshirt during the time she disappeared, CBS Local reported.
