The Pleasanton Police Department and its allied agencies have scaled back their search for Philip Kreycik, the 37-year-old Berkeley resident who failed to return from a planned run near Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park on Saturday.
After an exhaustive air and ground search boosted by the efforts of friends and fellow runners, no significant clues as to Kreycik’s whereabouts have been found. Investigators now believe that Kreycik, a PG&E energy analyst, is either incapacitated or somehow left the area.
Over the past four days, more than a dozen agencies and approximately 200 volunteers have retraced his planned route, finding his car, phone and wallet but no trace of the missing man. Today, Tuesday, searchers pushed 100 meters on either side of Kreycik’s intended route and into less accessible areas in hope of finding him or clues that might explain his disappearance.
“This was not an easy decision to make, and our focus is to continue supporting the Kreycik family,” said Lieutenant Erik Silacci, “We thank all of the search and rescue crews as well as the hundreds of volunteers who rallied together and remain committed to locating Philip.”
Anyone with pertinent information about this case is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at (925) 931-5100.
