ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 3, 2:02 P.M.: A search continued today for a 19-year-old college student who was on his way to his parents home in Laguna Niguel but whose SUV was found overturned near Castaic Lake on Friday.

Bryce Laspisa, who was driving from Sierra College north of Sacramento to Orange County, had called his mother about 2 a.m. that morning to say he was pulling over to grab some sleep.

Authorities say his cell phone, laptop and wallet were still inside his overturned 2003 Toyota Highlander.

Laspisa was apparently stopped by law enforcement during his drive south, but the officer said he showed no signs of impaired driving and was sent on his way.

It's possible he crashed the SUV and climbed out of a broken rear window, but there has been no sign of him near Lake Castaic so far, according to sheriff's officials.

His parents set up a Facebook page to help spread the word about the search for the "Critical Missing Person."

He is described as white with red/orange hair and blue eyes. He is about 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds. The flier after the update on the next page shows where to call if you spot him or have information that can help.

It is disturbing that one can take off  across country looking for someone and instead find an entirely different person not just dead, but dead and burned.

What a relief to the family! Prayers that they find him soon.

I'm still wondering why he drove to the crash site three times before he crashed. Very strange case

My guess is that it is him, and they are just waiting till they have enough pieces to introduce the 'Castaic Killer'.

How sad.  I hope it's not him but it probably is.  I wonder what happened.  Sounds like he crashed his car at the wrong place at the wrong time and ran in to some bad people.  What was happening when he crashed?!

This is so sad. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Bryce. It's so heartbreaking. I believe in Miracles, praying for one now.

I hope to god he is found safe and sound. But somebody didn't make it thru the day. Who would do that to a kid?  19 is still a kid. I have a son that age, the thought of something so horrible happening to him is horrifying.  I feel so sad for his parents.

Imagine how his parents feel right now.  Son missing, burned body found in same area, had to have met a terrible violent end (if it's him).  This is a nightmare.

ok so he was in a chase, rolled the car, they beat him to death then hid his body and set it on fire to hide the evidence?

I don't know if it's important or not but the city is Rocklin, CA, Sierra College is the community college there in Placer County. I hope that he is found safe. Shared.
