Randy Doyle Parscale Jr. .jpg

Ten-year-old Randy was last seen hiking with his grandfather and two brothers in Peppersauce Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains near Oracle, Arizona on April 7, 1979. He wandered ahead of the rest of the group and has never been seen since.

An extensive search of the canyon area did not produce any evidence as to Randy's whereabouts. One of the searchers was able to follow his footprints to a dirt road, where they stopped and Randy may have gotten into a vehicle at that spot.

Investigators are uncertain what happened to Randy; his case is classified as a non-family abduction, but he may have simply become lost in the mountains or fallen down a mine shaft.

Randy was a third-grader at Roberts Elementary School in 1979 and as of 2018, his case remains unsolved.


Randy is described as a Caucasian male with brown hair, brown eyes, is 4'6 and weighs 70 pounds. He was last seen wearing a green jacket, blue pants and shoes with a bulls-eye pattern on the soles.
