San Diego man crashes car in La Mesa Found
UPDATE: 10News Reporter Emily Thode stated that David’s family have confirmed that David’s body was found on an embankment near where he crashed his car. Jessie Bernal posted on Facebook: “My family and I are heartbroken. Our baby boy David Issac Bernal-Medinahas gone to be with the angels in heaven. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Sleep my baby boy. We love you ❤” The police have reported no foul play and it is likely David’s body has been there the whole time which makes you wonder why the police did not find him shortly after he went missing.
Original story: David Isaac Bernal-Medina, 32, who worked as a Lyft driver is missing from North Park in San Diego, Calif. I have two dates for David missing, April 7th and April 11. He was last seen driving his red 2016 GMC Terrain SUV. The SUV was found crashed on the side of I-8 near the Jackson Drive off ramp in La Mesa, a suburb of San Diego. The authorities stated it was a minor crash, and David was not driving for Lyft when it happened.
David’s phone is dead and there has been no activity on his credit cards or bank account. He also has not been on social media.
Josef Gonzales told NBC News7 San Diego that David’s sister’s birthday was on Friday and he never contacted her. David’s friend, Jessica Gonzales told News10 that she thinks he wandered off somewhere and someone picked him up. She also believes he might have a concussion and is wandering around unaware. They are both upset that police did not tell them that David’s car has crashed and they had found it the same day he was reported missing.
David is 6’2”, 160 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. David is known to frequent the Hillcrest area and once worked there at a salon that has since closed down.
