23 year old Shawn Dickerson was last seen in San Francisco, California on December 2, 2011. He disappeared after leaving his house, telling his roommates he was late for work.
Shawn Tyler Dickerson was born on November 11, 1988, in Ceres, California, to mother Trisha Brucker. When he was two years old, his father died in a motorcycle accident. Dickerson attended Modesto High School. After graduation, he relocated to San Francisco, where he frequently rented or crashed at his friends’ apartments.
Dickerson moved into an apartment on 22nd and Bartlett Street in 2011, sharing a room with five other people, including Anjul Droll, a close friend he dated for two years in high school.
About a month before his disappearance, Dickerson began working at Rolo, a men’s clothing store on Market Street in San Francisco, California. He was reportedly saving money to move to New York with Droll, where he had previously visited in the summer of 2010.
Dickerson was a keyboard player in Feie, a local band that performed around town.
Details of Disappearance
Dickerson began working at Rolo’s on December 1, 2011, and later met with his boss for a performance evaluation. He got his pay in cash because he didn’t have a bank account.
Dickerson went to lunch at the store and returned home around 1:00 p.m. When he did not return to finish his shift later that afternoon, his boss became concerned. As a result, he left several unanswered phone messages.
Dickerson finally responded to apologize at 11:30 p.m., but his boss informed him that he would be fired if he could not be relied on to return to work. He stayed up until 4:00 a.m. talking with two of his roommates after the call with his boss.
