    Search continues, 2 years after Central grad vanished

    A former Naperville resident who vanished two years ago in southern California has not yet been found, but his family isn't giving up hope.

    Bryce Laspisa last spoke with his parents, Karen and Mike Laspisa, at about 2 a.m. on Aug. 30, 2013. The couple has said they think the then 19-year-old was on his way from Sierra College near Sacramento, where he was a student, to visit them at home in Laguna Niguel, midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, where they recently had moved from Naperville.

    Police found Laspisa's 2003 Toyota Highlander about 5:30 a.m. that day, on its side at the bottom of a 15-foot ravine near Castaic Lake, with its back window shattered. Extensive searches in the weeks and months after his disappearance found no sign of the 2012 Naperville Central High School graduate.

    Remains found near Lake Hughes are skull, jawbone

    Homicide detectives haven’t determined the manner of death of the human remains discovered last weekend at a Lake Hughes-area campground, an investigator said Tuesday, but they do suspect the victim suffered “some sort of trauma.”

    Among those missing is Bryce Laspisa, a 19-year-old college student who disappeared in 2013 during a road trip from Sierra College near Folsom Lake to his parents’ home in Laguna Niguel. Laspisa’s Toyota Highlander SUV was discovered abandoned near Castaic Lake.

    Oh my... I will be surprised if this is Bryce. I've felt he may be alive after walking away from his old life...

    It's an interesting case. I still have contact information for someone who worked on the ground for this case. If we have questions, I'll send them a note and see if we're on the right track.

    Just finished watching the Disappeared episode. I didn't realize how many times he had been contacted in the Buttonwillow area just before his disappearance. After watching the show, I'm even more convinced he had some kind of a psychotic episode, whether it be the beginning of having bipolar issues because of his age, or because of some of the ADHD drug he had taken. He could very well be alive so let's keep his picture out there! His loved ones need to know what happened.

    @Kimster - Did you DVR the show or find it online? I keep checking the Investigation Discovery website but it doesn't look like they have any full Disappeared episodes up except for the first one on Jessica Heeringa. Was kind of hoping they'd upload them all since I don't have cable.

    I watched it via On Demand, which is a cable feature. :(

    Reminds me of another case. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Leah_Roberts

    her car was found wrecked. no sign of her at all. It is not known whether or not she walked away from that wreck to start a new life or if she met foul play. Some reported seeing a woman matching her description at a gas station not long after the wreck if memory serves correct. I hope Bryce is alive and is only missing b/c of some sort of breakdown and that he did not accidentally lead himself to death or meet foul play at the hands of another.

    Though I think there is more evidence to suspect Leah ran away in contrast to Bryce's case. Still I'm 50/50 on what happened to Bryce.

    I first thought he left on his own, now I'm not sure.

    Three years and counting

    When an unidentified body is found in Los Angeles County, Karen Laspisa phones a detective.

    The mother questions the investigator, inquiring about the whereabouts of her son Bryce and if the corpse found was her boy.

    For three years, the answer has been no.

    “Bryce is in the database,” Laspisa said. “The DNA is there, the dental records are there, the fingerprints are there. If remains are found, we know he would be identified.”

    Surrounded by mostly dead vegetation and golden tumbleweed, a newly erected billboard in Castaic still tells the story of how the lives of two parents were paused in 2013.

    Remains found near Templin not those of Bryce Laspisa

    A human skull and teeth found 10 weeks ago in a hilly rugged stretch of terrain near Templin Highway are not those of Bryce Laspisa who vanished four years ago.

    When investigators revealed in May that they hoped dental work would lead them to the identity of victim, they received calls from the families of missing people, Ed Winter, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, said Wednesday.

    One of those calls to the coroner’s Special Operations Recovery team was from the Laspisa family, he said.

    “The deceased had dental work, Laspisa does not,” Winter told The Signal Wednesday.

    Next month will mark the four-year anniversary of his disappearance.
