LOGAN, Utah — The Cache County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a Wyoming man who disappeared Wednesday.

Kyle Ryan Burton, 18, of Lovell, Wyoming, was last seen in the River Heights/Logan area on November 29. Burton is believed to be on foot without a coat or a phone. He is known to frequent the outdoors and likes hiking in local canyons, a statement from the Sheriff’s Office said.

Burton had been staying with family in River Heights over the last several weeks, the statement said, and he left his family’s home on foot around 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, and he never returned.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office has used an emergency notification service to contact residents within a three-mile radius of the River Heights home about Burton’s disappearance. Burton’s family has access to horses and outdoor equipment, which they’re using to assist in the search efforts.

Burton was described as Caucasian, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 210 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He was wearing blue jeans or shorts, a (possibly red) t-shirt and black Adidas shoes.

Call Det. Brian Groves at 435-755-1146 or dispatch at 435-753-7555 if you have any information on Burton’s whereabouts.
