SAN DIEGO — San Diego Police and friends of a German citizen are still digging for clues in the man’s disappearance.
“He’s an incredibly methodical guy and is very organized in everything he does. It’s just completely unlike him to not be in communication – letting friends know where he’s at or what he’s doing,” said Eric Simon, a friend of Peeks.
The 43-year-old Peeks rode away from the U-Haul center on his black mountain bike and hasn’t been seen since.
Peeks doesn’t have a car and rides his bike everywhere, Simon said. He would bike from his home in University City through a canyon to his job nearby where he worked as an engineer.
Peeks was scheduled to leave May 16 for an extended trip to his home country of Germany. Investigators went to his home and say there’s no evidence he left the country.
“Nothing was missing. His passport is lying there on the bed – his clothes were all there, suitcase. Everything you’d need if you were planning on leaving,” said Simon.
Investigators can’t track a cell phone — Peeks didn’t have one.
And there’s reportedly been no activity with his bank account since he disappeared.
