Police are trying to locate a San Jose man who disappeared after driving away on his motorcycle two weeks ago. Eric Dean Garcia, 32, also known as “Pee-Ka” was last seen at 11:45 p.m. on Sept. 18 near Vine and Goodyear streets. Police said Garcia was at a party in the neighborhood when he received a phone call and told his friends he would be right back. He then took off on his motorcycle, a black 1985 FLT-model Harley Davidson, and didn’t return. Police Officer Albert Morales said police do not believe any foul play is involved, and that Garcia likely either voluntarily disappeared or possibly suffered a medical problem.
Christina Johnson, Garcia’s sister-in-law, said that Garcia has a serious heart condition affecting his left ventricle and takes beta blockers along with other medications every day. Johnson said that Garcia left his medication at home the day he disappeared. Johnson also acknowledged that Garcia “has some known affiliations” with motorcycle clubs. “He’s a very social person. He’s always on his phone. He’s always talking to people. He’s got friends and family literally everywhere. Garcia is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing 350 pounds. He has a Harley Davidson symbol tattooed on the back of his head, police said. Police said Garcia was wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, a black leather biker vest, and black-and-white Vans shoes the last time he was seen. The license plate of Garcia’s bike is 18W5272. A post on a Facebook page set up for Garcia after he went missing states that there will be a candlelight vigil for him at 7 p.m. today at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish at 325 Willow St. in San Jose.
