LOS ANGELES COUNTY (KTLA) — The underwater search for a missing Orange County teen continued Thursday at Castaic Lake, a day after a burning male body was found not far from the site where the teen’s overturned SUV had been discovered a few days before.

The charred body remained unidentified Thursday, according to Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Fred Corral.

On Wednesday, sheriff’s department officials had said they had not been able to make a connection between the charred body and the case of missing Laguna Niguel 19-year-old Bryce Laspisa.

Laspisa had been driving home from Sierra College, the school he attended outside of Sacramento, when he told his mother on the phone that he was too tired to drive. That was about 2 a.m. Friday, Aug. 30.

A few hours later, his SUV was found on its side near Castaic Lake with a rear window smashed. Laspisa’s wallet and cell phone remained in the car.
