Man still missing after disappearing from San Francisco 49ers game Monday night

No Comments

By Leighton Schneider

iStock/Thinkstock(SAN FRANCISCO) — Authorities are calling on the public’s help in finding a man who disappeared after a San Francisco 49ers home game on Monday.

Ian Powers, 32, was last seen at the 49ers game at Levi’s Stadium, which he attended with his girlfriend.

During the fourth quarter, at around 8:15 p.m., Powers went to the restroom and never returned to his seat, according to Santa Clara Police Department Captain Wahid Kazem.

Surveillance footage from the stadium shows Powers exiting the stadium at the end of the game.

His girlfriend said that she had text messaged him and video chatted him to coordinate a place to meet each other, but that these were the last communications she had with him, Kazem said.

His phone has since lost power.

“It’s incredibly unlike him,” Sean Powers, Ian Powers’ uncle, told San Francisco ABC affiliate KGO. “He’s probably the most responsible person in my family.”

Calling it a “baffling investigation,” Kazem said that police did a grid search of the area surrounding the stadium, but smoke and conditions from the recent fires burning through California made visibility difficult.

He added that there is a marsh near the stadium and that it’s possible Ian Powers may have headed in that direction.

“We cannot yet rule out any possibilities including foul play, walk-away, or some sort of accident or medical emergency,” Kazem said. “None of the information or evidence has pointed us in a specific direction.”

Ian Powers was drinking alcohol on the night of his disappearance, but he appeared to “look relaxed and have pretty decent mobility,” Kazem said, referring to the surveillance footage obtained from the stadium.

Police are now working to put together a timeline to determine where Ian Powers could have gone.

“Our steps right now are contacting adjoining businesses, and trying to get external video surveillance,” said Kazem.

Anyone who has any information, either before or after this incident, is asked to call the Santa Clara Police Department at (408) 615-4700.

How Serena Williams learned to love her body, stop comparing herself to Venus

No Comments


Theo Wargo/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — In one of her most candid interviews yet, Serena Williams opens up about her formative years and trying to emulate her older sister, Venus.

Williams, 37, has inspired so many on and off the tennis court. In a new interview for GQ magazine’s Woman of the Year issue, she reveals how she was able to become comfortable in her own skin.

After telling the magazine just how close she is to Venus, 38, she admits that at a young age she really wanted to emulate her older sister.

“I was not myself. I was Venus. Just…Seren-us,” the now tennis icon said. “I identified as Venus. I felt weird, like, my boobs were bigger than Venus’, and my body was thicker. I was curvier. I was like, ‘Why am I not Venus?’ And she was tired of me copying her. She was like, ‘Get your own identity, please!'”

She said she finally accepted that she “looked different. And I played different. And I hit different. And I ran different.”

Williams’ half sister, Yetunde (who died in 2003), helped her gain her famed body confidence, as well as become the champion she is today, on her own terms.

“I was really struggling, and she’s like, ‘You know, everyone is different. You’re not Venus, and you’re never going to be Venus. You’re never going to be as thin as her, and that’s OK. And you’re never going to be as tall as her, and that’s OK. Nothing is wrong with that. You have a beautiful body on your own. You have a beautiful face,'” she explained to the magazine.

Williams said that advice really helped her move on.

“It was good that she taught me that lesson, because in a way she was teaching me a lesson about life,” she added. “In a way, it had nothing to do with Venus. It wasn’t about her at all. Tennis players in general didn’t look like me. Especially the top players or anyone that ever won Grand Slams. Nothing like me. So it was, Can I win looking like this? Can I perform looking like this? And that was something that I realized that I could do. I just had to learn that it was okay to, you know, not be Venus.”

In the powerful interview, Williams also opens up about being a mom and how happy she is with her 1-year-old daughter Olympia.

“And I’m a full-time mom. I’m a very hands-on mom,” she said.

She continued, “We do everything together. I love everything about being a mom. The only thing I don’t love about being a mom is come 7:30, Olympia’s in bed and I get sad. I’m like, ‘Should I go to bed?’ Because then if I wake up, I get to see her again.”

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Nick Diaz is returning to the Octagon after four years.

The UFC welterweight will face Jorge Masvidal on March 2 in Las Vegas at UFC 235, according to UFC President Dana White.

While contracts for the fight have not yet been signed, they are close to being completed, sources tell ESPN.

Diaz last fought in January 2015 against Anderson Silva. While he lost the bout to Silva, the result of the fight was later changed to a no-contest after both fighters tested positive for drugs.

Houston Rockets ‘parting ways’ with Carmelo Anthony

No Comments


Allen Kee / ESPN Images(HOUSTON) — Carmelo Anthony’s time with the Houston Rockets is officially over.

The team announced on Thursday that it will be “parting ways” with the power forward.

Anthony, 34, joined the Rockets this past summer and played just 10 games with Houston this season before the team moved off of him.

“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him.”

“The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him,” Morey added.

Houston doesn’t plan to immediately waive Anthony, sources tell ESPN, and will allow his representatives to continue exploring where the 10-time All-Star will end up.

Anthony won’t be eligible for a trade until after Dec. 15 since he signed with the Rockets as a free agent.
