SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The parents of a missing 12-year-old Boy Scout are asking for more volunteers to help them in their search this weekend.
Garrett Bardsley disappeared August 20th in the Uinta Mountains after leaving his father to return to camp to change his wet shoes and socks. The camp was only a short distance away.
The official search was scaled back on Sunday and Garrett is presumed dead, but Garrett's father has continued to lead volunteers into the dense forest.
Yesterday, about 50 volunteers showed up to search the area where he was last seen.
The search will continue this weekend, but officials say volunteers should take necessary provisions such as clothing, a tent, and sleeping bag in case they get stranded.
