WHAT HAPPENED TO MICKEY GUIDRY? SAN MARCOS TEEN WENT MISSING THANKSGIVING WEEKEND NEAR OCOTILLO CAMP IN ANZA-BORREGO; WHEREABOUTS REMAIN A MYSTERY
Questions raised over early handling of case; no major search mounted for weeks after Jeep SUV found disabled 22 miles off-road in remote desert locale
By Miriam Raftery
i dont recall seeing a case with so many conflicts between LE, witnesses & the parents, as this one.
the statements made by LE are DISGUSTING (IMO)
when being called out by the mom for not searching for her son
LE said this:
If it was my kid, I would have had my own search team out there 24/7immediately, he noted.
mom probably missed the handbook on how to do a search in the desert when your son goes missing.
mom started a facebook for support/help:
questions for you all:
what are the steps needed to look for cell phone pings?
is that even possible if the battery is dead?
does anyone on here have experiences with the desert?
i find it semi hard to believe this kid would have gone off the road by himself to take a short cut across the desert. that seems overly risky when he didnt even have a drivers license. also the family that last saw him alive- are being very vague. (see above article)
The family is organizing a search in the desert this weekend:
Definitely some puzzling statements and reactions but let's get Mickey home.

Still no sign of Mickey :http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/mar/22/no-sign-of-teen-turns-up-in-desert-search/
"Crawford said the family appreciated the volunteers’ efforts, especially the help of Moe Dubois, who was instrumental in getting searchers organized. Dubois’ daughter, Amber, disappeared while walking to school Feb. 13, 2009. Her remains were found March 5 in a remote area off Pala-Temecula Road "
great job everyone!
thank so much for the links.
I'm very familiar with this area we live about an hour and an half away. We had friends who were rangers there, one of whom was a flight student of my husband's so we would spend many weekends hiking around and flying over the park.
Few things about the park; it is the largest state park in the US and it is surrounded by BLM land. The area is very, very vast. Flash floods can wash down from the nearby mountains even when the sky above the spot you're standing on is below blue sky.
It can be hot and dry even in the winter. Mountain lions range there and it is not unusual to see one. Even during the most visited times in the park, you can find remote camping without other people around.
Nights in the winter are very cold, the temps in Nov. could have gone from 70+ in the daytime to 39 at night, hypothermia is a constant danger for someone who isn't prepared for it.
There are areas in the BLM land off-limits because of unstable and unexploded ordinance from WWll training (Patton trained there).
My gut feeling is that the kid tried to walk out and didn't make it out alive and his body has not been found yet. People who are dehydrated, who have heatstroke or with hypothermia can walk quite a way from the spot where they were first lost at and they don't often follow a logical route. He might have stayed with the jeep until night, gotten cold and confused and walked away, which would explain why his wallet and other item were left behind.
As to why law enforcement didn't start a search right away, I think much of it had to do with what the mother told them about the kid's prior behavior. Not excusing le, I happen to think that any missing kid should be an Amber alert, just saying that the mom also thought that the kid was joy-riding and would return.
i totally agree
& that has also been my gut feeling on this case.
thank you for the insight on the area, that helps a lot.
One year later, and still no word...
Mickey has been added to the Charley Project: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/g/guidry_mickey.html
Boy's disappearance in 2009 still a mystery
Two years ago 16-year-old Mickey Guidry disappeared deep in the Anza-Borrego Desert.
Since then, nothing. The San Marcos boy has vanished without a trace.
