SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- Spanish Fork students have done much to keep their friend's memory alive.
Students yesterday presented more than 16-thousand dollars and eleven-hundred backpacks to the parents of Garrett Bardsley, the Boy Scout who has been missing since late August.
The 12-year-old got lost on a Scout trip to the Uinta Mountains
His parents will use the money to build a foundation and a school in Ecuador in Garrett's name.
Even though the official search for Garrett's body has been called off, his family continues to look.
