Officials may have called off the search for Victor Murillo, a 27-year-old Dodgers fan who went missing after apparently falling into the water near AT&T Park Monday night, but the man's family continues to seek out their loved one. Murillo was last seen on Piers 30-32, where he and a friend were walking back to their car just before 11 p.m. The friend had been composing a text message when he looked up and noticed Murillo was no longer with him. The friend believes Murillo fell in to the water that night, but a search by SFPD, SFFD and a Coast Guard helicopter turned up nothing by Tuesday afternoon.
Murillo is a SoCal native who works as a security guard at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville. He was last seen wearing his Dodgers jacket, a gray baseball cap, white shirt and blue jeans as he left the game with his friend. According to friends and family who spoke to the Chronicle, Murillo is "a huge Dodgers fan" who could "light up a room with his humor" and had a penchant for doing a little Michael Jackson kick when he dances.
Some of Murillo's friends organized their own water searches using kayaks this week, but now that it seems unlikely the missing man in Dodger blue will be found in the water, his supporters are now asking for help in bringing him home. A donation page has been created to help his family cover the cost of the search.
Anyone who may have seen Murillo or have information about his whereabouts should call SFPD at (415) 315-2400.
