    Witnesses Claim To Have Seen Boy Walking Alone

    Searchers Hopeful Missing Boy Is Alive

    POSTED: 6:08 pm PDT August 1, 2004
    UPDATED: 11:21 am PDT August 3, 2004

    BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. -- More than 100 rescuers continue to search for a missing 9-year-old boy Tuesday.

    Don Welch with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department told NBC4 he is hopeful David Gonzales is alive and will be fine.

    Welch said the boy's prognosis is good since both the weather and the boy's age are on his side.

    Welch added that search and rescue teams will search indefinitely... 24 hours a day for many days until the boy is found.

    NBC4 learned that fresh tracks have been discovered, and witnesses claim to have seen the boy walking alone away from his parents.

    Earlier in the week, authorities said they were interested in talking to the driver of a vehicle that left the area about the time David Gonzales disappeared Saturday morning, but there was no evidence of an abduction.

    I hope with all my heart that this is just a case of a little boy getting lost. I have a 9 year old and 8 year old, and I can't imagine them lost in the mountains. Fortunately, our temperatures have been very mild the past couple of days. I'm praying they find little David soon.

    Missing boy may have walked alone

    Missing boy may have walked alone

    LOST: Sheriff's find what they think are footprints from the 9-year-old.


    01:27 AM PDT on Wednesday, August 4, 2004

    FAWNSKIN - Footprints that may have been left by David Gonzales' Nike shoes and a possible sighting have surfaced as the only clues sheriff's officials have in the search for a 9-year-old who has been missing for four days, officials said Tuesday.

    Tracks that are believed to be David's were found one mile north of the Hanna Flat campground. David was camping with his family and two others when he disappeared Saturday morning. Tracks that were found Monday were determined not to be David's, said sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers.

    Witnesses told deputies that they saw the boy walking northwest on one of the campground's roads, Beavers said. They confirmed the sighting with a photograph. The witnesses, who weren't identified, said the 9-year-old was walking alone.

    Can they use volunteer searchers for something like this, or in rugged terrain do they leave it to the experts?

    I am on vacation the next couple days and live about 1-2 hours away and would love to help, but don't know how or who to contact. My gut feeling is they use trained search and rescue teams.

    Anybody know or have any ideas?

    All I can tell you from being up there yesterday is that they have command post set up and the whole town is on high alert. I think they are using trained personnel.

    Do you remember another missing boy from Big Bear. (I'm not sure this is the right place to post this).

    It was maybe 10 years ago, he was about 9 or 10. Was hiking with his boy scout troup I think. When they got back to the parking lot and did a head count they were one short. Searched and searched for days for him. They found his camera and developed the pictures. He had taken pics of himself (that they published at least). They may have found some slide type marks in a ravine, but I don't think they ever found him. I've often thought about him and what happened. I think I read somewhere that there were alot of pot growers up in the area, and they possibly had something to do with it. Does anyone remember this case and have any further details so I could research further?

    I was hoping to get here this morning to some good news, but I see not. You know, if they can install small devices in cars to find them when they're stolen, why can't they have something that you can put inside a sneaker or something like that, so when you're in a large area with children, they can be found. With technology what it is today, this is a damn shame.

    Daily News of Los Angeles (CA) - August 5, 1991

    SEARCH FOR SCOUT CUT BACK, OFFICIALS SHUT DOWN FIELD HEADQUARTERS
    Searchers looking for a missing 12-year-old Boy Scout scaled back their efforts Sunday, 16 days after the El Monte youth vanished while hiking with his Scout troop in the wilderness of San Bernardino County. Efforts to locate Jared Michael Negrete will continue with aerial searches and foot patrols several times a week, but county officials closed a mountain command post that had been the field headquarters for the search."The command staff feels as if his probability of survival...
