Details of Disappearance

Guevara was last seen riding his black Harley Davidson motorcycle in Bakersfield, California at 11:00 p.m. on September 12, 2015. He has never been heard from again.

Investigators believe Guevara was murdered and his body cremated in a funeral home incinerator by members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, which he was a part of. A funeral director told the FBI that the Hells Angels conducted four illicit cremations in the Fresno, California area. Another person suspected to have been cremated is Robbie Huff.

In October 2023, Merl Hefferman, former president of the Fresno chapter of the Hells Angels, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justie by arranging the cremation of Joel Silva, who was hot in the back of the head in the gang's Fresno clubhouse. No one has been charged in connection with the other suspected cremations.
