UINTAH COUNTY, Utah — Crews are searching for a 10-year-old boy who went missing while hiking in the High Uintas Sunday morning.

Supporters on social media are spreading the word because officials aren’t allowing volunteer search teams out for the “foreseeable future.”

Officials said 10-year-old Malachi Bradley went missing in the High Uintas in the vicinity of the Paradise Park Campground.

The Facebook page “Malachi Bradley Rescue Effort” posted a photo of the child and updates on efforts to coordinate volunteers for a search.

Uintah County Dispatch officials confirmed to FOX 13 News search and rescue crews were out on some sort of incident but declined to provide any further details.

The child went missing around 10:30 a.m.

A post on the Facebook page states that volunteers are no longer being allowed to go out in search teams as of Sunday night, but that there could be more search teams allowed out in the future.
