December 22, 2009 (Anza Borrego) – San Diego Sheriff reported on December 18 that Mickey Guidry, 16, has been missing since November 26th when he ran away from his parents’ home in San Marcos. Guidry reportedly took his parents’ 1995 Jeep Cherokee without permission. On November 30th, the Jeep was located unoccupied in an extremely remote area of the Anza Borrego Desert.


Sheriff’s officials believe Guidry drove the Jeep to the desert, where it became disabled, then left on foot. Aerial and ground searches of the area have failed to locate Guidry. He is 5’ 9 “ tall and weighs 155 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He may have been wearing blue or black shorts or Dickies jeans with blue high-top tennis shoes.


No explanation was given on the Sheriff’s website as to why nearly three weeks elapsed from the date the Jeep was discovered to when the Sheriff made a public announcement about the missing teen on the Sheriff’s website.

If you have information on Guidry, please call the San Diego County Sheriff at (858) 565-5200.

This is Mickeys mother..

This is Mickeys mother.. There IS no explanation as to why the SD Sheriffs didn't bother to start looking for him until 3 weeks after I reported him missing~ they tell me that they "thought he'd been found already"... but they never verified it.
He left on foot from the Pinyon Mountain area (the dropoff), which was over 10 miles of pretty rough terrain, very remote.. His last contact with anyone was Nov 27.. he had no id, no money, no clothes (all of those things were left in the car). He is familiar with Anza Borrego, but not much of the Pinyon Mtn area because the terrain was too rugged for us to explore... If anyone has any information, please call the SD Sheriffs Dept. Thanks
