LOS ANGELES COUNTY (KTLA) — The search continued Tuesday for a college student from Orange County whose overturned SUV was discovered at the bottom of a ravine near a Castaic Lake boat launch.

Bryce Laspisa, 19, was last heard from shortly after 2 a.m. Friday, Aug. 30, when he told his parents he was too tired to drive.

Laspisa, a student at Sierra College near Sacramento, was making his first trip home to Laguna Niguel from Northern California in a white Toyota Highlander recently given to him by his parents.

“He said ‘I got off the 5 (Freeway) in a residential area. I’m tired, I’m going to sleep in my car,’” Bryce Laspisa’s mother, Karen Laspisa told KTLA.

She asked her son to call her when he woke up.

“That’s the last I talked to him,” Karen Laspisa said.

Bryce Laspisa’s SUV was discovered lying on its side near Castaic Lake a few hours later.
