  • Details of Disappearance
    Randy, then 10 years old and a third-grader at Roberts Elementary School, was hiking in Peppersauce Canyon near Oracle with his father and other family members when he ran ahead on the trail and disappeared from sight.

    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.

    Theories about Randy's disappearance ranged from kidnapping to falling down one of the old mine shafts in the area.
