Circumstances of Disappearance
Parscale was last seen at picnic and rock-hunting excursion with his family in Peppersauce Canyon, the Santa Catalina Mountains, AZ.
While Parscale's grandfather rested in the shade that afternoon, the young boy, his stepbrother and his uncle ventured up a trail.
Parscale ran ahead at one point, up a hill and around a bend - and vanished.
For almost a week hundreds of searchers - on foot, on horseback, via helicopter and using search dogs - scoured the rough terrain on the north side of the Catalina Mountains.
