Body found in Bay believed to be of missing tech worker

A body found in San Francisco Bay near the Golden Gate Bridge on Tuesday morning is believed to be of 26-year-old Daniel Ha, who has been missing since Halloween, his family announced Wednesday.

The U.S. Coast Guard and San Francisco fire crews responded to reports of a body floating in the Bay around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, a fire dispatcher said.

The body of the person crews retrieved had appeared to be dead for a week, Coast Guard officials said.

“In speaking with the Medical Examiner, while the face and body were indistinguishable, the clothes, wallet contents, and phone matched Dan's personal belongings,” Ha's brother Mark wrote on the Facebook page “Find Dan Ha.”

Ha has been missing since Oct. 31, when he was last seen leaving his apartment in the South of Market neighborhood, police said.

According to the Facebook page, Ha was an iOS developer at a local startup called Metromile and was a Stanford University graduate.

A memorial service for Ha is scheduled for Friday evening at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church at 3281 16th St. in the Mission.
