    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. :candle:

    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.

    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.

    That man was ID'd as Duke Herrera.

    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").

    This is a photo out of our family photo album. The photo was taken in 1964. Steve is squatting down in the dark coat (Second from the left). My brother and two sisters are in back on the right.

    :eek:fftopic: The kid in the middle with the crew-cut was my next door neighbor John Landrum. He died in 1979 the at the age of 21 when his car got caught in a flash flood.
