BOX ELDER COUNTY - June 15, 2022
Efforts to find a missing Lucin man, Dylan Rounds, are actively continuing, according to a press release from Box Elder County Chief Deputy Cade Palmer, but to date, "Every area searched has not turned up any sign of him so far."
The 19-year-old man disappeared from property he was farming in Lucin in western Box Elder County on Saturday, May 25. Since then, Box Elder County volunteer teams have logged over 300 hours searching and have covered over 3,000 miles, not including travel time, Palmer said.
"Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office detectives and deputies have also been searching around the clock, weekdays and weekends. So far, detectives have spent over 650 hours investigating this case. These numbers continue to increase daily and do not include the time and resources contributed by assisting law enforcement agencies and search teams."
Palmer said his office has coordinated their efforts with other agencies, groups and people, including Box Elder County Search and Rescue, Box Elder County Horse Posse, Elko County Sheriff's Office (Nevada), Weber County Search and Rescue, Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau, Utah Search Dogs, Rigby Police Department and Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office (Idaho), Ogden Police Department, Davis County Sheriff’s Office, FBI, Search and Rescue K9s of Idaho, Texas Equusearch, and friends, family, and volunteers.
"We are so grateful for all of the support. We will continue to ask for additional assistance and resources as needed," Palmer said, adding, “This is an active law enforcement missing person/criminal investigation. Only updates that do not have the potential to compromise the
investigation will be released.”
The Sheriff's Department is asking that those who may have knowledge regarding the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Dylan Rounds or his current location call their office.
