Body found in Calif. ID'd as missing Pa. college student death ruled homicide

A 19-year-old Jewish student at the University of Pennsylvania who had been missing from his parents' Southern California home for nearly a week has been found dead in a park.

Blaze Bernstein's body was discovered in the brush surrounding Borrego Park in Foothill Ranch community, the Orange County Sheriff's Department announced Wednesday.

Bernstein was visiting family while on winter break from the University of Pennsylvania and went missing on the night of January 2 after going to Borrego Park to meet an unknown person, CBS 2 reported.

Several search operations were conducted over the week for Bernstein after his parents reported him missing to the Orange County Sheriff department. His death is being investigated as a homicide and an autopsy was being performed on Wednesday. No suspect is in custody. Bernstein left the vehicle and entered the park.

At a news conference, after his body was found, Gideon said the family is "devastated", and called Bernstein "a brilliant, colorful and charismatic man". While the friend used a bathroom, Bernstein walked off and has not been seen since.

Bernstein did not take his keys, wallet, credit cards, medication or eyeglasses when he left his parents' house to meet the friend, and did not say goodbye, his father told the Los Angeles Times.

Authorities would not say how the college sophmore died or whether the friend he was with that night is a suspect but so far no arrests have been made.

When Bernstein didn't return, his friend began sending him text messages but did not hear back, and the location device on his phone eventually stopped working, she said.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department had been searching for Bernstein since he was reported missing.

"If there's any way you can come home, whatever has happened, wherever you've been, whoever you've talked to - it doesn't matter", she said.

No additional information on his case was released by police.

"The only thing I can think of is that maybe he was abducted", the newspaper reported Bernstein's mother Jeanne saying on Sunday.
