Leonard Bernard Branzuela
Missing since June 26, 1993 from San Francisco, California.
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Branzuela was last seen in San Francisco, California on June 26, 1993. Authorities believe that he committed suicide by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge.

Leonard Branzuela, a Lowell High School wrestling coach, got a haircut on the June morning in 1993, then walked to his mother's apartment at 17th and Mission. She wasn't home. Leonard went around the corner to a little Mexican restaurant for rice and beans. When he finished eating, he went back to see if his mother had returned, but she hadn't.

Somebody saw Leonard later, waiting for the 22- Fillmore bus, which winds its way around town to the Marina Green, on the edge of the bay about a mile east of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Leonard's wallet was found on the bridge's city facing sidewalk with a list of telephone numbers. A witness saw a body in the water below.
Branzuela's remains have never been recovered.
