But as the brothers struggle with realities of the grown-up world, thirty-seven-year-old Eddie vanishes one day from his desert home in Tucson, Arizona. Is his exile a self-imposed attempt to hide from life's mounting troubles, or is he quietly looking for a better life? Or worse, is foul play involved?
Johnson spends the next seventeen years searching for Eddie with the help of three police forces in two states, private investigators, and an army of family members and friends. One cool November morning, Johnson receives a phone call that finally answers many of his questions.
Based on real-life events, Looking for Eddie is a touching story of two brothers growing up in idyllic surroundings that eventually steer both men in different directions, where one meets his final fate, and the other changes his.
