The boy is from California and has been in the program for a month. He is wearing tan shorts, brown cargo shirt and his name is Roberto Madrigal.
There is approximately 12-15 searchers, trackers, vehicles and the state helicopter looking for the youth. The Beaver County Sheriff's Office and search and rescue is leading the search.
