MP of the week: Randy Spring

This week’s featured missing person is Randy Charles Spring, a 28-year-old Army veteran and volunteer firefighter who disappeared while on a solo hiking and camping trip in the Whitewater area of Riverside County, California. That was on October 10, 1988.

Spring was physically fit and had survival training. That didn’t prevent him from disappearing. From the books I’ve read about people who disappeared in wilderness areas, it seems like a lot of people become overconfident in their skills and abilities.

Me, I would never go on a wilderness trip alone, especially not a multi-day one. Perhaps that’s being overcautious but I’ve read too many horror stories.

    As a woman, I definitely would not go alone.
