Early this morning, police expanded the search in San Francisco for missing Danville teen Allison Bayliss, whose bike was located at Crissy Field Tuesday morning — a day after the 15-year-old was reported missing. However, Danville Police Chief Steve Simpkins is now saying the case is not criminal, but rather a “personal” matter.
It's “absolutely not criminal,” he told reporters.
But that gave Bayliss' friends and family — who are puzzled by her disappearance — little comfort. Her father, David, has been combing the waterfront in San Francisco since finding her purple and black Diamondback bicycle locked up at a bike rack at Crissy Field.
“We Just hope and pray that Allison is alive,” he told reporters.
