Freddy Murguia was last seen in Los Angeles, CA on July 24, 1986 and has not had any contact with friends of family since. At the time of his disappearance he had a felony warrant out for his arrest, which led many to believe he voluntarily walked off, but as time went on people became more concerned.
Freddy grew up in Hollywood and was currently living in West Hollywood, in the area of Santa Monica Boulevard and Genesee Street. He, along with his sister and her husband ran a moving business at the time. He regularly attended the popular nightclubs in LA and was well known in the area. In 1986, the same year he went missing, he had a small juice stand-off of Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, just below Melrose on Martel. Many people would see him driving his motorcycle around town, his favorite form of transportation at the time.
He was last seen carrying his wallet, ID, credit-cards, house/truck/car keys, and a comb. He may have also been carrying chapstick, handkerchief and a belt. He always carried his pager on him.
Freddy disappeared along with another person named only as “Jose”. Very little is known about Jose aside from him driving a mid size, dark blue, four-door vehicle. The car has never been located. Jose is not listed as missing and has never been seen again according to Freddy’s family.
