Law enforcement authorities Tuesday evening were searching for a missing 19-year-old man who was believed to have been driving a pickup truck that was involved in an accident near Castaic Lake.
Rescue divers from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department were searching the lake for evidence that might lead investigators to Bryce Laspisa.
Laspisa was driving a 2003 Toyota Highlander that was found on its side about 5:30 a.m. Friday on the Main Ramp Road near the lake, authorities said.
Several hours earlier, Laspisa called his parents, reportedly from Buttonwillow in Kern County, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Authorities said Laspisa lives in Roseville, in Placer County, and had been driving to visit his parents in Orange County.
Deputies on Tuesday also scoured San Francisquito Canyon and surrounding areas with a helicopter and with search dogs.
Laspisa is described as white with red hair and blue eyes. He is 5-feet-11 and weighs 170 pounds, according to authorities.
He has a tattoo of a Taurus the bull head with a Roman numeral on his left shoulder. He was last seen wearing white cargo shorts, a blue-and-white checkered shirt and white-and-red Nike shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Chris Carns at (323) 890-5500.
