Searchers looking for a 19-year-old Orange County man now missing for more than three weeks plan to search the San Fernando Valley Monday, a search coordinator said.

Bryce Laspisa went missing Aug. 30 after his 2003 Toyota Highlander SUV was found on its side at the bottom of a 15-foot ravine on the Castaic Lake Main Boat Launch access road. The back window had been shattered.

On Sunday, search volunteer Debra Sweetland met with other volunteers in effort to schedule the latest search efforts in San Fernando after having received a report of Laspisa being seen at a grocery store there.

“There was a sighting at a Food 4 Less so we’re looking at searching there,” she told The Signal Sunday. “We’re just putting everything together now.”

A Facebook page devoted to the search for Laspisa advised anyone wanting to help to meet at the “command center” at Starbucks in Castaic near Castaic Road at 9 a.m. Monday.

Volunteers are expected distribute flyers in Valencia and San Fernando Monday, according to a message posted on the dedicated Facebook site Sunday.
Friends and family have not given up hope that the missing collegestudent is alive.

Bryce Laspisa may be debilitated after having suffered some sort of head injury as the result of a single-vehicle traffic collision. said the young man’s uncle who is coordinated search efforts from his home in Illinois.

The latest theory to explain Laspisa’s disappearance Aug. 30 is that the Sierra College student is in need of medical help, Brian David said recently.
