Tough call in Fawnskin

After scouring the forest around Big Bear for nine days, searchers on Sunday told the parents of nine-year-old David Gonzales that most of them were giving up and heading home. San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers, who usually seems pretty stoic on camera, broke down in tears relating the news that the parents were "devastated." Gonzales wandered away from his church camping group in Fawnskin on July 31, and the search has turned up no good leads.
