    "Police are asking for the public's help in finding a retired firefighter, often referred to by friends as "The Dude," who went missing last week in Simi Valley.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    That's a reaLLY beautiful area. Only a few short miles from my home as the crow flies. Lots of hills and crevices to fall into though if he went for a hike.

    This is my neck of the wood. Literally. I do not know him but live off the cross street he went missing from. The hills right behind Wood Ranch (the subdivision he lives in) are a very popular hiking spot but they were on fire last Friday. I doubt anyone would be up there right now, it may still be blocked off, but if he is confused or has memory lapses he may have gone there.

    Simi Valley is surrounded by hills and hiking. It's been very, very warm though so most people venture out in the early morning hours.

    I'm not sure how I can be of help but I know this area very well and feel the need to do something.

    "Officials say the circumstances of his disappearance are suspicious, but have not yet given details on the reason." I don't think they would be saying this if they thought he went on a hike and got lost. IMO.

    I wondered if he went on a hike and harmed himself. Maybe he left a note or all his personal items (keys and phone) in a pile?? Our city has such an incredibly low crime rate, it's so safe. I just can't imagine someone kidnapping him or something.

    CA - Steve G. Voegtli, 63, Simi Valley, 12 August 2015

    Nothing new just a different source, our local county news site:
    http://www.vcstar.com/news/local-new...y-man_63915763

    "The man is an avid walker and likes to walk trails in the Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks Agoura and Malibu areas and is often referred to by his friends as “The Dude,” authorities said. Voegtli does not have a phone, vehicle or identification with him, police said."

    I wonder what his diagnosis is for the memory problems and disorientation mentioned in the first link above. That could help narrow down some places to look.

    Still on the look-out for retired freighter with dementia. May appear dismembered and dazed. Perhaps he is getting help from a local church group or other charity group. Continue to pray for him and those who love him.

    Now there's another possibility, a man's body found in Playa del Rey. According to the FB page, Mr. Voegtli's family is waiting to hear word on whether or not the deceased is their loved one.

    I knew Steve Voetgli when I was a child. He lived right around the corner from me, and was a friend of my older brothers and sisters. I was surprised to see his NamUs page when it came online last month. I regognized his uncommon name immediately (it is pronounced like the word "Vaguely", like as in "I vaguely remember").
