Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case )


Scott was last seen at his family's residence in Muscoy, California on July 26, 1992. He was asleep on the couch in the living room and his parents were asleep with his two siblings in the bedroom. Someone knocked on the door at 2:30 a.m. and Scott went to answer it, and apparently rode his bicycle away from the residence afterwards. He never returned home and has not been seen again. The bicycle has never been located.
Neighbors told authorities that Scott smoked cigarettes, drank alcohol and stole bicycles in the vicinity at the time of his disappearance. The child's family denied the allegations. Investigators did learn that Scott was on probation for setting fire to an abandoned building the year before he vanished. He was also known for panhandling around Muscoy. Scott's family reportedly lived in rather dire conditions in the city. His relatives passed polygraph tests and are not believed to be connected to his disappearance. There are few clues in Scott's case, which remains unsolved.
