“My son is a happy boy. He would never commit suicide. He has too much to live for,” said Isata Bandabaila, the missing teen’s mother. “The last thing he said to me was that he wanted to talk to me later about something and he loved me. Kissed me then he walked out the door. He was planning on coming home. Something happened to stop him from being able to do that and we need to know what that was.” SF Chronicle, May 31, 2019


Jonathan was last seen in the Fruitvale area of Oakland, California. His 1998 Honda Civic was found on the the San Mateo/Dunbarton Bridge on May 4, 2019at 1:30AM.  ​
