Patrick Albert Wright, Missing Since December 8, 1975


Patrick Albert Wright, also known as “Pat”, went missing from San Francisco, California when he was 25 years old on December 8, 1975. He had went to take a walk and never returned.

Wright is a vulnerable, highly endangered adult.  At the time of his disappearance, he was unable to work and was battling mental illness, specifically schizophrenia. It is uncertain if he was more mentally unwell the day of his disappearance and got disoriented and lost, or if he encountered foul play. 

Listed below is the timeline of events surrounding the day leading up to his disappearance and the day of his disappearance:

  • Wright and his parents left their residence in Torrance, Los Angeles County, CA to take a 12-hour long drive to attend a wedding in Humboldt County, CA.  Essentially, they were driving from Southern  CA to Northern CA.
  • Wright and his parents attended the wedding.  There were no incidents to suggest unusual distress, and there were no altercations.
  • Wright and his parents began driving back home to Torrance, but they wanted to stay in a hotel in San Francisco halfway through, since it was such a long ride.  (San Francisco is in Central CA, somewhat in between North and South CA.  Wright’s parents planned to drive the remaining 6 or 7 hours the following day.
  • Wright and his family checked into a hotel, and they put their luggage in the Hotel room.  Wright told his parents that he needed to stretch his legs and that he was going for a walk. The name and address of the hotel is currently unknown, but I will update this article if / when I have that information.
  • Wright went walking down the street.  It is unclear in which direction he went walking and exactly which street.  If and when I have that information, I will update this article accordingly. After a brief period of time of Pat not returning to the hotel, his parents grew worried.  They called the police to file a missing person report, and they drove around to look for him, to no avail.
  • Law enforcement investigated Wright’s case, but no one could locate him.
  • Wright’s sister took a DNA test, which was entered into CODIS, to be compared against unidentified remains (John Doe’s).

    Because Wright vanished before cell phones were used, there were very little means to physically search for him.  His wallet was left in the hotel room.  If he, hypothetically-speaking, passed away and was later located without identification in his possession, it would have proven difficult to identify him at the time.

    Wright’s physical description is as follows:
  • Brown hair
  • Brown eyes
  • 5’10” tall
  • 175 pounds
  • Caucasian
  • Possibly had several dental crowns

Patrick was born on December 9, 1950 in California.  He attended Torrance High School in Torrance, Los Angeles County, California. He may have resided in Camarillo, California, possibly even for a few years.  Although, that is just speculation from old clues he had left behind.  Letters with a return address to Camarillo, CA were found.  

Wright’s niece is an advocate for his disappearance, and she would love nothing more than for him to be located.  She had reached out to me after I first wrote and published this article, to give me an extensive amount of information, in order to help paint a more “rounded” story of his disappearance and to include more clues.  She wonders if Wright may have tried to return home to Torrance and if he had a mental break while in San Francisco.

When Wright disappeared, his parents suspected foul play. It is unknown if he was abducted, taken out of the country, lured, murdered, held hostage, hit by a car, had an accident while walking, was a victim of a hit-and-run accident, had a fall, struck his head, had sudden amnesia, or something else. The possibilities are endless.

My goal in writing this article is to bring light to this case. It has remained a highly underrepresented missing person case for many years. Because Patrick vanished in 1975, his case is obviously cold. His parents are both deceased.  Because his case went cold prior to the internet expansion, little info on his case has made it to the ‘world wide web’. Hopefully his case can be “pushed” to be reopened or reanalyzed.

I enhanced a photo that I found of Wright online, and then I created some age-progression photos to show what he “may” have looked like in the past and what he may look like now if he were still alive:
