In the summer of 1988, Keith Reinhard, a Chicago sports reporter and an aspiring novelist moved to Silver Plume Colorado, a small mountain town in the Colorado Rockies.  He opened a small antique store and hoped the slower pace of life would help with his novel.  Soon after moving in, Keith learned of the strange disappearance of Tom Young, who had previously leased Keith's shop and went missing almost exactly a year earlier.  Keith took interest in the disappearance of Tom and decided his book would be based on him.  On August 7th, 1988, Keith set out to summit nearby Pendleton Mountain to help with writers block.  Keith didn't return from his hike and was never seen again.  Join us this week as we investigate the disappearance of Keith Reinhard.

EP. #37: Jared Negrete - San Bernardino National Forest - California

July 19th, 1991, 13 year old Jared Negrete was on an overnight backpacking trip with the Boy Scouts in the San Bernardino National Forest in Southern California.  On a hike to the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio, Jared fell behind the group and was asked to stay behind and wait.  The group planned to get Jared on the way down but Jared was gone.  The only item recovered during the search was a disposable camera with an eerie partial selfie of Jared’s face at night.  

 

To help describe the search effort, we sat down with Rick Maschek, a SAR member formerly with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Desert Rescue Squad, who spent over a week searching for Jared in 1991.  Join us this week as we try to piece together what happened to Jared Negrete.
