A night-long search for his missing son ends in the woods: ‘He’s gone. I found him.’

For more than 14 hours — in his car and on foot — Frank Sepehri had been looking for his 17-year-old son, Navid. He’d last seen him the night before and knew he had gone to a nearby party in Bethesda but not come home.

Just before 5 p.m. Sunday, Sepehri had made his way to a wooded ravine. On one side, above him, was a row of nice suburban homes. On the other, the parking lot of a swim club.

And in the gap, he saw his son’s body, floating faceup in a patch of frigid water.

“Navid!” he screamed — so loud that a nearby resident came running to help.

He pulled his son from the water, sat next him and spoke by phone with his wife, Nasrin.

“He’s gone,” he said. “I found him.”
