Negrete had gone with his fellow Boy Scouts on a camping trip, which was the first trip that he would spend overnight. He somehow got separated from his group, likely after falling behind and then going off on the wrong trail.[3] Negrete was last seen wearing green Boy Scout pants, with a tan-colored T-shirt (possibly a Boy Scout-style T-shirt), and with black high-top tennis shoes [4]

Investigation and aftermathEdit

When a search was conducted to find Negrete, twelve snapshots were developed from a camera that was discovered that may have belonged to him.[5] The 19-day search combed the area of the 11,500-foot Mt. San Gorgonio. Shoe prints were found at about 10,000 feet matching those of Negrete. Also found was his backpack, as well as some beef jerky and candy wrappers, but Negrete himself could not be located.[6] In 2001 Jared's father Felipe Negrete became involved with a case of another hiker who got lost in the same area, a 16-year-old boy named William Parven.[7]
