Find Jonathan Bandabaila

Our 19-year old son, Jonathan Fayiah Bandabaila has been missing from Oakland, Bay Area, since May 3, 2019. Jonathan's car was found 
abandoned on the San Mateo Bridge on May 4, 2019. Since then, the Oakland Police Department has not been able to find Jonathan's whereabouts.

Our family is suffering not knowing where he is or what happened to him. We need answers , so this Go Fund Me is being established to hire a private investigator. These funds will also be used to increase the reward money, which will be given to anyone who provides information that leads to solving our son's disappearance.  

Any amount helps. No amount is too small!!

Here is last week's press conference:
Please share Jonathan's story and his picture on your social media. Someone knows something and we just need that person to do the right thing and come forward.

All of your help is appreciated.

Thank you and may the Almighty God bless you all.

From the Bandabaila Family
