Have You Seen This Teen? Parents Search Near Castaic

Castaic, CA -

(FOX 11 / AP) Parents of a missing teen were spending the Labor Day weekend searching for their son after his car was found at the bottom of a cliff.

Bryce Laspisa, 19, called his parents, Karen and Michael Laspisa around 2 a.m. on Friday and told them he was pulling off the I-5 in a suburban area because he was tired and going to sleep in his car.

Bryce had been traveling for several days after leaving  Sierra College in Rocklin which is north of Sacramento to drive home to Laguna Niguel on Wednesday night.

Authorities pieced together his journey and they do know that around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, that Bryce ran out of gas  on Thursday morning, and called for roadside assistance from the Buttonwillow Rest Area near Bakersfield.  The serviceman told authorities that Bryce looked okay but his eyes were red. After Bryce's car was gassed up he stayed at the rest area for another 10 hours, but eventually drove to Lagoon Drive about five miles away, reports The Santa Clarita Signal.

Then on Thursday around 10:30 p.m., Bryce told his mom that he was going to hang with some friends.  He bought a drink from the Shell station in Buttonwillow on Thursday.  Friday he called his mom around 2 a.m.  That was the last phone call his parents received.

Bryce's girlfriend posted:  "Bryce left Chico, California at 11:30pm on Wednesday, August 28. He ran out of gas at approximately 9:00am on Thursday, August 29 in Buttonwillow, California. The last time anyone spoke with him was 2:08am on Friday, August 30 when he spoke with his mother."

When the Laspisa's didn't hear from Bryce they contacted the police who located his 2003 Toyota Highlander SUV overturned on the Castaic Lake Main Boat Launch access road.  Bryce's cellphone, wallet and laptop were found in the vehicle along with some blood.  The back window was shattered with an emergency tool that was kept in the center console of the car.

Other information revealed that Bryce had told his mother he was break-in up with his girlfriend and that he had a lot he wanted to talk to her about.

A search for Bryce was conducted by helicopter, walking teams, dogs, an airplane and boat through the weekend.

If you see Bryce or know of his whereabouts, please call 661-272-2594.

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table.
