Mystery of Utah teen who vanished from farm after 'weird run-in' with high and barefoot suspect on dirt road
2nd June 2022

A FAMILY is desperately searching for their loved one after he vanished after a "weird run-in" with a barefoot man on a dirt road.

Dylan Rounds, 19, was last seen on Saturday in Lucin, Utah working on the family's farm where days before he said he had a strange encounter with an unknown man.

"The man was walking down the gravel road barefoot. He flagged Dylan down, who was in his truck," said Katie Wells, Rounds' aunt.

She added that on the Wednesday before his disappearance, Rounds spoke with several family members on the phone about the man.

"He asked to use Dylan’s phone and was acting erratically. Dylan felt the man was dangerous and may have been high. When he asked Dylan for a ride, (Dylan) did not give him a ride."

According to Wells, the man was seen again in Montello, Nevada a few days later, asking about Rounds while other reports say the man allegedly received a ride to the teen's trailer on Saturday.

"We don’t believe anything was ransacked," said Wells. "Dylan is missing, his phone is missing and his wallet."

Due to his age, some have speculated that Rounds may have run away, but the Box Elder County Sheriff's Department said in a Facebook post that he is listed as missing.

Family has been working with law enforcement to look for Rounds.

"He is an old soul, farm boy at heart. All he wants to do is get up and work all day every day. He isn’t interested in partying, he isn’t interested in travel," said Wells.
