Narrative: The complainant, Sharon Strickland, called to report her adult son, David Claypool, and his friend, Kyle Bennett, missing, after they went into the wilderness reserve behind their residence at 1600 hours on 3-12-12. The two had advised her that they intended to cut a trail to a creek approximately 1.5 miles into the reserve and would return before dark. As night fell the complainant became worried. CCSO and UCI K9 tracking teams responded and attempted to track the persons but lost scent in the swamp. The men were placed into NCIC and the search continues.
