  • Man missing after Giants game could be in the Bay

The Coast Guard spent the night above the bay, looking for a man that may or may not have fallen into the water after drinking too much at the Giants game last night.

According to ABC News, the man's friend said they had parked their car at Pier 32 near AT&T Park. After watching the Giants play, the two intoxicated men went back to the pier and stood at the end, near the water.

The man's friend said he looked away for a few seconds, and when he looked back, his buddy was gone.

However, nobody actually saw the man fall into the water, so police couldn't confirm that he's in there. But that's where they are presuming he is.

Helicopters flew around the bay all night, searching for the man, who has yet to turn up. Crews took a break this morning after doing a final lap over the water at about 4:30 a.m.

A second helicopter crew was planning to search around Pier 40 this morning. Police are also walking the piers, looking for the man.

Here's what ABC caught on video.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
