He had sent a text message at 9:30 p.m. January 2 with his family's Lake Forest address for a high school buddy to pick him up and take him to the park to meet a third person, she said. Bernstein's body was discovered in the brush surrounding the park. Bernstein went off alone into the park while his friend waited back in the vehicle, she said. The friend left but returned to the park around 4 a.m.to look for him. Bernstein's father, Gideon Bernstein, had worked with friends of the family to conduct independent drone operations.

Eventually, the location device on Bernstein's phone stopped functioning and the phone was turned off, Della Donna said."He didn't have anything with him, " she said.

His family realized something was off when he didn't show up for a dental appointment on Wednesday. "I can't figure out why anybody would want to hurt my son". "He didn't have his glasses or his medication". But all that we really know is that he ran off into the wilderness and we don't know why, ' she told KABC.

Before the break, Bernstein was hired as a copy associate for 34th Street Magazine, and last semester, he wrote a guest column in The Daily Pennsylvanian criticizing the University's implementation of recommendations from its Task Force for a Safe and Responsible Campus Community.
