JOE HERRERA says he hasn't had a decent birthday since his twin brother vanished in 1971. Johnnie Herrera vanished from Oxnard, California on Aug. 27, 1971 when he was just 20-years-old. The years since have been a complete mystery for Joe and the rest of the family. he wasn't depressed. There were no signs of foul play. Joe, now 60, told the Ventura Star: "I lost my twin, and since then, I don't think I've ever been the same. There's a really deep, empty void in my life since he vanished."
He was last seen at a friend's bachelor party in his 1969 blue Volkswagen. He and his car were never found. Johnnie was married and had an infant son, Johnnie Jr. and his brother said it was very unusual for him not to come home. Someone thought they had spotted him at a McDonalds near his home. Over the years the family has scoured southern California looking for him without any luck.For the next couple of days, Joe went to inquire about his brother at the typical hangouts of the time, including a McDonald's on Saviers Road, where someone thought they spotted Johnnie.
Over the years, Joe and his five siblings went from the San Fernando Valley to Los Angeles' Skid Row in hopes of finding clues. Nothing. MORE IN THE VENTURA STAR
