Juan Carlos "Cookie" Hernandez was last seen Tuesday, September 22nd at 10:01pm. Our family has not seen or heard from him since. We miss Cookie and will not stop searching until we find him. 

This is his story. 

Juan Carlos "Cookie"


On Tuesday September 22nd, Juan Carlos "Cookie" Hernandez left his home in the West Adams community of Los Angeles, and headed to work for an evening shift at his job near West 82nd Street and Western Avenue. At 10:00pm Juan's shifted ended and he was seen exiting his job. Since that night, we have not seen or heard from Juan. 

Juan's car was found near Figueroa Street and West 64th Street on Thursday September 24th at around 3am. Onlookers described the car as being on for several hours without anyone inside. 

Juan was a responsible young man, who participated in the college preparation program, Neighborhood Academic Initiative (NAI), and ran several marathons with the Los Angeles running group, Rundalay. He was studying at El Camino College and planned to transfer to USC in the near future. 


Cookie is dearly missed by his little cousins, young goddaughter, brothers, parents, and family. We hope to reunite with Juan soon and celebrate his 22nd birthday with him on October 15th. 

We appreciate any and all help to find Juan.
