Blaze Bernstein left his parents' home in Lake Forest, in Orange County, on Tuesday to visit a friend at a local park. The friend then left the park but returned at 4 a.m.to look again.

Bernstein's phone had stopped functioning and was turned off around 11:30 p.m., Della Donna said. "I don't think he planned on this being a long trip and he just disappeared".

"He didn't have anything with him", Donna said. "He didn't have his glasses or his medication".

"The use of drones to help find Bernstein and other missing people is just one form of new technology law enforcement is using to do their jobs", said former FBI Agent and ABC News contributor Brad Garrett.
