Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Patrick Tanouye

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Patrick Keoni Tanouye, a 30-year-old man who disappeared from San Francisco, California on September 28, 2012.

I can’t find much on him, other than a note that he may be driving a black 1999 Dodge Dakota pickup. I did find his Facebook page; it says he moved to San Francisco in May, five months before his disappearance. An earlier post indicates he might have spent some time in rehab or a psychiatric facility in late 2011:

The last posts were from May 30, just after his move:

I wish I knew more about the details of Patrick’s disappearance. If anyone who knew him finds this blog, feel free to comment below.
