    Leonard Bernard 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.

    Branzuela, a Lowell High School wrestling coach, got a haircut in the morning, then walked to his mother's apartment at 17th and Mission. She wasn't home so he 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. His remains have never been recovered.
