July 19th, 1991, 13 year old Jared Negrete was on an overnight backpacking trip with the Boy Scouts in the San Bernardino National Forest in Southern California. On a hike to the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio, Jared fell behind the group and was asked to stay behind and wait. The group planned to get Jared on the way down but Jared was gone. The only item recovered during the search was a disposable camera with an eerie partial selfie of Jared’s face at night.
To help describe the search effort, we sat down with Rick Maschek, a SAR member formerly with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Desert Rescue Squad, who spent over a week searching for Jared in 1991. Join us this week as we try to piece together what happened to Jared Negrete.
