NEW CLUES GUIDE DESERT SEARCH FOR MISSING TEEN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

MICKEY GUIDRY, 16, HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE THANKSGIVING              

 BY SARAH GORDON – SGORDON@NCTIMES.COM | POSTED: APRIL 27, 2010 8:06 PM | 

SEARCH AND RESCUE VOLUNTEERS WHO SCOURED A DESOLATE AREA OF ANZA BORREGO THIS WEEKEND FOR A SAN MARCOS TEEN MISSING SINCE THANKSGIVING FOUND THE FIRST NEW CLUE IN MONTHS, REDIRECTING THE HUNT AND CAUSING NEW CONCERN THAT THE BOY MAY HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN DANGEROUS TERRAIN.

ANOTHER VOLUNTEER SEARCH FOR MICKEY GUIDRY, 16, IS PLANNED FOR THIS WEEKEND. IT IS BEING ORGANIZED BY MORE KIDS, THE NEW GROUP FOCUSED ON FINDING MISSING CHILDREN HEADED BY MOE DUBOIS, FATHER OF MURDERED ESCONDIDO TEEN AMBER DUBOIS, WHOSE FAMILY SEARCHED MORE THAN A YEAR BEFORE HER REMAINS WERE FOUND IN PALA.

“I KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO FEEL BEING WITHOUT YOUR CHILD,” DUBOIS SAID TUESDAY. “IT’S A FEELING YOU CAN’T EXPLAIN, AND I WANT TO HELP THEM (OTHER FAMILIES) IN ANY WAY THEY CAN TO END THAT FEELING.”

MICKEY, A SAN MARCOS HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR, WAS LAST SEEN THANKSGIVING WEEKEND, WHEN HE TOOK HIS PARENTS’ JEEP CHEROKEE WITHOUT PERMISSION AND JOINED A SCHOOL FRIEND AND HER FAMILY FOR THEIR HOLIDAY CELEBRATION AT A TRAILER CAMP NEAR OCOTILLO WELLS.

HE DROVE AWAY FROM THE CAMP FRIDAY, NOV. 27, AND ON SATURDAY MORNING HIKERS FOUND THE ABANDONED JEEP STUCK IN DIRT WITH A FLAT TIRE MORE THAN 20 MILES DOWN A ROCKY DIRT ROAD USED BY OFF-ROAD VEHICLES.  “I THINK HE REALLY OVERESTIMATED HIS ABILITY TO GET DOWN THAT ROAD,” MICKEY’S MOTHER, MISSY PERUCCA, 38, SAID TUESDAY.

SHERIFF’S SEARCH AND RESCUE VOLUNTEERS IN DECEMBER FOUND A BLANKET BELONGING TO THE TEEN ABOUT A MILE AWAY FROM THE JEEP AND CONCLUDED MICKEY HAD PROBABLY WALKED ALONG A FLAT WASH, PERHAPS MAKING IT ABOUT EIGHT MILES TO HIGHWAY 78.  SUBSEQUENT SMALL-SCALE SHERIFF’S SEARCHES AND A MARCH SEARCH INVOLVING ABOUT 70 VOLUNTEERS FOCUSED ALONG THE WASH.  MICKEY’S CASE IS CLASSIFIED UNDER “RUNAWAY JUVENILE” ON THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE’S LIST OF MISSING PEOPLE. VISTA SHERIFF’S DETECTIVE PAT YATES, HEADING THE CASE, SAID IT IS NOT CLEAR WHERE MICKEY WENT, OR WHETHER HE RAN AWAY, THOUGH HE BELIEVES THERE IS A REASONABLE CHANCE MICKEY MADE IT TO THE ROAD AND HITCHED A RIDE. NOW MAYBE HE’S NOT COMING HOME BECAUSE HE’S WORRIED HIS PARENTS ARE ANGRY, THE DETECTIVE SAID.

PERUCCA SAID SHE DIDN’T THINK HER SON WOULD RUN AWAY, AND THE UNEXPLAINED DISAPPEARANCE OF HER ONLY CHILD HAS BEEN HORRIBLE.  “IT’S SUCH AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER; ONE DAY YOU HAVE HOPE AND OPTIMISM, THE NEXT DAY EVERYTHING SEEMS GRIM,” SHE SAID.

NOW THERE ARE NEW CONCERNS.  ON SUNDAY, AS SHERIFF’S SEARCH AND RESCUE VOLUNTEERS LOOKED FOR SIGNS OF MICKEY IN THE DESERT, SGT. DON PARKER SAID HE CLIMBED A GRUELING, ROCKY MOUNTAIN IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION FROM WHERE THE SEARCH HAD FOCUSED AND FOUND THE JEEP’S VINYL SPARE TIRE COVER AT THE TOP. PARKER THINKS THE TEEN USED IT TO COVER HIS HEAD ON THE RAINY NIGHT HE APPARENTLY LEFT THE VEHICLE.

PARKER SAID HE THINKS MICKEY SAW THE LIGHTS OF BORREGO SPRINGS FROM THE RIDGE AND HEADED DOWN. BUT THOSE LIGHTS WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN VISIBLE FROM THE DESERT FLOOR, AND EACH STEP HE TOOK WOULD HAVE HAD TO BE OVER ROCKY, ALMOST IMPASSABLE TERRAIN.  “NOW OUR CONCERN IS HE WENT OVER LAND, NOT FOLLOWING WASHES OR TRAILS, THAT HE WENT COMPLETELY CROSS-COUNTRY,” PARKER SAID.

HOWEVER, MICKEY COULD HAVE HIT HIGHWAY 78 AFTER ABOUT EIGHT MILES IN THAT DIRECTION, TOO, HE SAID.  DUBOIS SAID BECAUSE THE TERRAIN IS SO BAD, HE’S LOOKING FOR AVID HIKERS AND PEOPLE WITH SEARCH AND RESCUE, LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY EXPERIENCE TO HELP FIND MICKEY IN A SEARCH PLANNED SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

BOY’S DISAPPEARANCE IN 2009 STILL A MYSTERY

SAN MARCOS — 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.

 THE JEEP CHEROKEE GUIDRY WAS DRIVING THAT BECAME DISABLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT. — COURTESYTHE WHEEL OF THE JEEP CHEROKEE GUIDRY WAS DRIVING THAT BECAME DISABLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT. — COURTESY

“DID HE MAKE IT OUT OF THE AREA? WE’D LIKE TO THINK YES,” SAID SHERIFF’S SEARCH AND RESCUE SGT. DON PARKER. “BUT WE DON’T KNOW.”

PARKER HAS BEEN TO THE DESERT PERHAPS 30 TIMES SINCE THANKSGIVING WEEKEND 2009, LOOKING FOR MICKEY.

OFTEN GROUPS OF VOLUNTEER SEARCHERS GO TO THE REMOTE AREA TO TRAIN. THEY LOOK FOR CLUES AT THE SAME TIME.

AT FIRST AUTHORITIES FIGURED MICKEY HAD RUN AWAY. A WEEK BEFORE HE WAS LAST SEEN HE HAD STOLEN HIS GRANDFATHER’S MOTORCYCLE AND WRECKED IT IN THE RIVERSIDE COUNTY MOUNTAINS, THEN TOLD A PARK RANGER A WHOPPER OF A STORY ABOUT HOW A BAND OF MOTORCYCLE THIEVES HAD TAKEN IT. DEPUTIES SOON FIGURED OUT MICKEY’S LIE, AND HE WAS GROUNDED WHEN HE RETURNED HOME.

THEN TWO YEARS AGO ON THANKSGIVING, HE TOOK A JEEP CHEROKEE HIS MOTHER HAD GIVEN HIM FOR HIS 16TH BIRTHDAY AND HEADED TOWARD OCOTILLO WELLS WHERE A FRIEND WAS CAMPING WITH HER FAMILY.

HE SPENT THE NIGHT WITH THEM THEN LEFT ALONG A RUGGED, REMOTE ROAD SUITABLE ONLY FOR STURDY OFF-ROAD VEHICLES.

THAT WEEKEND, HIKERS IN FISH CREEK WASH FOUND THE SUV BROKEN DOWN. ONE OF THE WHEEL RIMS WAS SEVERELY BANGED UP WITH THE EDGES CRUNCHED. INSIDE THE JEEP WERE MICKEY’S WALLET AND CELLPHONE CHARGER BUT NOT THE PHONE. RECORDS WOULD LATER SHOW IT WAS NEVER USED AGAIN.

THE SUV HAD BROKEN DOWN NEAR AN ESTABLISHED HIKING TRAIL 7.8 MILES SOUTH OF STATE ROUTE 78. ABOUT 1.5 MILES NORTH OF THE JEEP, SEARCHERS FOUND A BLANKET THAT HAD BEEN IN THE SUV. THEN THEY DISCOVERED A COVER FOR THE JEEP’S SPARE TIRE NEAR THE TOP OF A HILL NOT FAR FROM WHERE THE BLANKET WAS RECOVERED.

THE HOPE IS THAT MICKEY SOMEHOW WALKED OUT OF THE DESERT OR WAS GIVEN A RIDE BY SOMEONE AND HAS DECIDED TO DISAPPEAR. OR PERHAPS, PARKER SAID, HE WAS ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE DESERT BUT THEN SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED TO HIM LATER.

THE CASE NOW RESIDES WITH THE SHERIFF’S HOMICIDE UNIT AS A MISSING PERSON CASE, BUT THE CASE IS COLD.

“THE LONGER IT GOES THAT MICKEY IS NOT DISCOVERED IN THE DESERT GIVES ME MORE HOPE THAT HE IS ALIVE AND HAS CHOSEN NOT TO COME HOME FOR SOME REASON,” SAID HIS MOTHER, MISSY PARKER.

“IF HE DID MAKE IT OUT OF THE DESERT, THERE IS SOMEONE OUT THERE WHO HAS INFORMATION ON WHERE HE IS OR WHERE HE MAY HAVE GONE, AND THIS PERSON NEEDS TO COME FORWARD. WE NEED TO KNOW WHERE MICKEY IS AND IF HE IS OK. EVEN HE IF MAKES THE CHOICE NOT TO COME HOME SINCE HE IS 18 NOW, I JUST WANT SOME ANSWERS ON WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AND WHY HE MADE THE CHOICES THAT HE DID. … AND TO LET HIM KNOW IT’S OK TO COME HOME. …”

IT’S NO COINCIDENCE THAT MISSY PARKER AND DON PARKER SHARE THE SAME LAST NAME. THE TWO MET WHILE SGT. PARKER LED SEARCHES FOR MICKEY. THEY FELL IN LOVE AND MARRIED LAST YEAR.

THERE HAS ONLY BEEN ONE POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF MICKEY.

DON PARKER SAID THAT A FEW MONTHS AGO AN OFF-DUTY POLICE OFFICER SAW A DRIFTER ON A TRAIN IN ILLINOIS THAT RESEMBLED MICKEY. THE BOY WAS GONE WHEN THEY WENT BACK TO FIND HIM, AND THE BOY HAD A TATTOO ON HIS LEG THAT MICKEY DID NOT HAVE WHEN HE WAS LAST SEEN.

THE LEAD WENT NOWHERE AND MOST LIKELY MEANT NOTHING.

“IF HE’S OUT AND ABOUT HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO MADE A CONCERTED EFFORT NOT TO CONTACT HIS GRANDPARENTS OR HIS MOTHER,” PARKER SAID.

A FACEBOOK GROUP PAGE, HELP FIND MICKEY GUIDRY, IS STILL ACTIVE. MISSY PARKER, STILL POSTS THERE AND FOLLOWERS PLEAD FOR ANYONE WITH INFORMATION TO LET IT BE KNOWN.

HIS MOM NEEDS CLOSURE,” SGT. PARKER SAID.
