Rancho Cuyamaca


A 7-year-old Mexican boy who roamed from his campground in Rancho Cuyamaca State Park on Sunday is still missing, a Sheriff’s Department spokesman said Monday.

Antonio Garcia of Mexicali and his family, including the boy’s twin brother, were camping at Green Valley Falls, when Garcia meandered away about 3 p.m., wearing a thin, long-sleeved T-shirt, Sheriff’s Sgt. Roy Hood said.

Hood said the temperature was expected to drop to the mid 40s Monday night with rain and heavy fog.


“We’re really pulling out the plug on this,” Hood said. “There’s a good probability he lived through the night, but the weather is getting worse.”

He said 250 persons were being used to search for the boy through Monday night.
