Details of Disappearance
Parscale was last seen hiking with his grandfather and two brothers in Peppersauce Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains near Oracle, Arizona on April 7, 1979. He wandered ahead of the rest of the group and has never been seen again. An extensive search of the canyon area did not produce any evidence as to Parscale's whereabouts.
In 1985, a woman reported that she had found a dollar bill with the phrase, "I'm alive in Phoenix, Ariz. Help me. Randy Parscale" written on it. Police investigation of this lead turned up no evidence. In 1989, Parscale's family found out that a man using Parscale's Social Security Number (SSN) was working at a construction site in Phoenix. His father went to Phoenix to investigate and found out that the individual also fit Parscale's physical description. He was no longer employed at the site, however. The construction worker was never located and his identity has not been confirmed.
Investigators are uncertain what happened to Parscale. His case is classified as a non-family abduction but he may have simply become lost in the mountains. His case is unsolved.
