Young San Francisco Man Missing After Online Meet-Up

A sad saga has emerged from the West Coast: Deborah Berlingeri is frantically looking for her 22-year-old son, Evan, who disappeared after arranging to meet someone he met on a dating/hookup app on June 19.

This is my son, Evan Flanary, 22, 6ft 1, 160 lbs, blonde hair/blue eyes, wearing blue jeans and gray hoody. Last seen on foot in the Mission district in San Francisco on June 19, 2012, meeting a stranger from a social phone app contact.

This is not like him to disappear. He has no money and his phone has died.

Anyone with information should contact the San Francisco Police Missing Persons Department 415-734-3268 or J.D. Berlingeri 541-680-2616 or their local Police Dept. Share this website [] on Facebook or retweet on Twitter if you can assist.

Your assistance is very much appreciated. Thank you.

While Berlingeri doesn’t indicate if her son is gay or what app he was using, we’re hoping one of you might know something. (More details have emerged on

We hope Evan turns up safe and sound and none the worse for wear. Aside from that, let’s remember that it can big a big, nasty world out there and to use caution and judgment when planning our reindeer games.
