    I know it isn't the original article but this one quotes it stating it was in an OC Register article. Is that the quote you were looking for?

    Thank you so much for the photos SoCalRes! Now I really wonder how the friend would know that Blaze went into Whiting Ranch Park? He could have gone anywhere!

    Hi 001! Welcome to WS and thank you for sharing this information. Do you think Blaze was/is under a lot of stress?

    Regarding the medication, it was stated that he needed it to "function". <modsnip>

    Thank you so much for the information, photos and map! Is it even possible to see the beginning of the trail he was supposedly on while next to the bathroom at night? Seems pretty far.

    I live in the area and the helicopters are back up. Not sure if it’s related but it’s the same area.

    Based on the SAR search of the dogs, not finding Blaze's scent anywhere in the park, I honestly do not believe he was ever there.

    Buddy friend has some major explaining to do, IMO. I hope LE was able to get a search warrant for Buddy friend's phone. It would be interesting if his GPS was turned off around the same time Blaze's was.

    Since the search has been called off for the park, I sincerely hope LE has an idea of a secondary place to look.

    In the meantime, I am still waiting for positive ID on the burned out car victim in Angeles Forest. I'd like to know it's NOT Blaze.

    yes thanks! So, if this is true then I&#8217;m sure it has been backed up by OCSD by phone tracking and all that, and that is why the search was so many days at the park. It costs money to do searches, I don&#8217;t think they would have followed that lead so intensively if there wasn&#8217;t some truth to it. I still think there&#8217;s a possibility he was at that park. I could be wrong and this is all just my opinion and thoughts

    Also a “patrol check” at Borego Library” which is by the park

    What's really cool...ANYONE can message a celebrity (unless they have their messaging turned off) with a copy of ANY missing persons poster and ask that celeb to share it!
    The amount of exposure any case gets is somewhat dependent on friends/loved ones/sleuthers, etc. willingness to really work the case by spreading the message far and wide.
    One example is the Michael Chambers case...many of us got very active in contacting news shows, podcasts, missing persons pages, etc. and even nationwide firefighters pages, as well as retired firefighter pages and asked them to share MC's poster.
    I've seen 'share campaigns' where someone has messaged a missing person's favorite singer/band and asked for a share to help out the missing fan.
    Danielle Stislicki's family and friends have done an incredible job of advocating for the return of their beloved daughter. Created bracelets, started a painted rock campaign, have get togethers where they paint car windows with Dani's hashtag and info. They have what seems a close relationship with a certain reporter who they keep in the loop and who keeps us in the loop. Sadly, there are SO many missing persons that those with 'squeaky wheel' supporters get the most attention.
    Be creative and reach out.

    There isn't a lot some of us can do from miles and miles away, but some of us can dedicate some time to sit down with ANY missing persons case and spread the word.

    No, it is highly unlikely you could see anyone at the far end of the park from the parking lot. Especially someone wearing dark colored clothing at night.

    I think that unless the body is identified as Blaze tomorrow, it is exceedingly unlikely. The turnaround on identifying burned bodies from dental records is only a few days, and given the vast resources of the OCSD and the significant media attention given to this case, I believe they already have internally answered that question by now.

    Thanks for the welcome. I can't speculate on Blaze's stress level considering that I didn't intimately know him, but I think in general, Penn students operate with a high degree of stress and that campus culture increases it while providing few outlets for it. I remember an article about a Columbia student who vanished for two weeks only to be found when she reactivated her credit cards, having broken down due to the pressure of final exams. She was described as a model student with a good family just like Blaze.

    He could have been walking in that direction, but no, I wouldn't have assumed he walked into Whiting Ranch just because he was walking in that direction. I would have assumed the shopping center before Whiting Ranch.

    I don’t know. That’s what’s on the police log

    The OCSD helicopter (Duke?) is searching now at night in that area?

    Good point. Does anyone know whether a cell phone's location can be retrieved from the info associated with a text? If so, LE could have verified whether and when the borrowed phone Blaze was using was in the park as well as (with permission) whether and when the phone of the friend who drove him was in the park.

    Thank you. I have been wondering that for a few days now based on the map of that area. I wonder why it was assumed he was heading into Whiting Ranch just from the direction he was traveling, unless they have information from his phone putting him there.

    "Patrol check" is pretty generic. Typically it means someone called and asked the police to go check the area out. E.g. because they saw something that didn't look right, or they are on vacation and want their home checked on. I don't think we can read anything into that call classification. It could mean almost anything.
