Born and raised in the great state of NewMexi.co! I feel that New Mexico offers so much more than just green chile, we're far too under appreciated and overlooked. I'm proud to do whatever I can to help change that!

    I say hoax, but you can never be too sure. Too bad we don’t have a recording of the call! CB radio users often prank each other, make up ridiculous names for themselves & do other crap just for shiggles.

    The NM desert is vast & rugged, so if someone WAS stranded out there it would be hard to find them in time. And this was August, when the heat would’ve been unbearable. I assume nobody reported a boy and his dad missing around that time?

    The fact that this played out over 5 days lends more credence to it. Most pranksters would be bored and give up before that, but maybe not if they knew a search was happening & people were buying it.

    I’m saying 70% hoax; 30% real.

    I say 100% hoax. Not a snowball’s chance in Phoenix of being real. As the story goes “Larry” and his dad are in an accident, the truck (red and white) rolls over and comes to rest on its top and either Larry’s dad is dead or severely injured. (1)”Larry” , who is seven years old conveniently knows how to operate a C.B. radio but doesn’t know his last name, where he lives, etc.
    (2) The truck is on its top, but somehow the C.B. radio antenna is still intact and the 1973 vintage led acid battery in the truck doesn’t leak out its liquid acid through its vents and by pure miracle “Larry” has the wherewithal to only turn on the ignition switch when he wants to use the radio.
    (3) “Larry” has the wherewithal to “conveniently ” switch radio frenqucies so as not to be transmitting on any one frequency long enough for radio trackers to find his location.
    (4) The battery holds out for five days of periodic use and at least one reported three hour continuous transmission session.
    (4) even if “Larry” didn’t know his last name or what city or state he lived in, he would have been able to answer or volunteer basic information that would lead to his identity and whereabouts.
    For example if “Larry” said I am in second grade and am in Mrs. Smith’s class at Lincoln elementry, one could do some old fashioned detective work (nationwide) and look up all the kids named Larry in Mrs. Smith’s class at each and every Lincoln elementry schools in the country. Now contact all those parents, and see if by chance see if one of these kids is missing and whether his dad drives a red and white pick up equipped with a C.B. radio. The actual number of Lincoln elementry schools that have a second grade teacher named Mrs. Smith that has a Larry in her class will be amazingly small. Even nationwide.
    (5) No missing person report at the time indictated a man with a kid named Larry driving a red and white pickup to be missing.
