TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Pinal County sheriff's office is working on a 32-year-old cold case.

It's the disappearance of Randy Parscale Jr., who was 10-years-old when he disappeared while hiking at Peppersauce Canyon.

Randy got separated from his stepbrothers and was never found despite a large scale search.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A 76-year-old Tucson man disappeared Monday when he went out to get the mail.

He was wearing blue jeans, a blue and white checkered shirt, wears glasses and uses a cane.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- It's a milestone in the reconstruction of the Mescal Road / J6 overpass bridge on I-10.

Tuesday night crews started placing the concrete girders to support the new bridge, which is scheduled to be open to the public this fall.

As a result, the pedestrian walkway by the I-10 Mescal/J6 bridge will be closed Wednesday night, 8 P.M. to 6 A.M.

Be aware of the project if you're driving around there.


TUCSON, Ariz. -- Public comment on the proposed Rosemont Mine is beginning soon.  On August 30 people can start sharing their thoughts.

The mine still needs a key permit to start operating.

The director of the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality is inclined to grant the permit, but could change her mind after seeing public comment on the issue.

Rosemont wants to start construction next year.
