    Details of Disappearance

    Strehle was last seen by his landlady's husband on the evening of July 5, 1973, near his studio apartment in the 1200 block of Judith Lane in South Lake Tahoe, California. He has never been heard from again. He left behind all his belongings and his three vehicles.

    Strehle had purched a "fixer-upper" home on Zuni Lane shortly before he went missing. He was employed as a realtor with Maloney Realty in 1973, and is described as a quiet, reliable, responsible employee. He was mildly depressed at the time of his disappearance because his girlfriend had moved to Colorado. His case remains unsolved.
