Jared Michael Negrete
Missing since July 19, 1991 from San Gorgonio Summit, San Bernardino County, California
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
He went with his Boy Scout troop on his first overnight camping trip. The 14 boys and their leader began hiking at Camp Tahquitz, south of Big Bear Lake, and were en route to the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio when Jared began lagging behind. At some point, he is believed to have strayed onto the wrong trail. Rescue teams and hundreds of rescuers from as far away as Malibu searched around the clock. They searched for 19 days and found shoe prints at about 10,000 feet matching those of Jared. They found his backpack. They found beef jerky and candy wrappers. They found his camera. They developed the film and found a haunting last picture Jared had taken of himself.
