TOOLE COUNTY, Utah — The family of a missing couple from Eureka is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of the Jeep the teens were in when they vanished in December.

Breezy Otteson, 17, and Riley Powell, 18, have been missing since December 30 when they were driving from Tooele to Spanish Fork, with their final destination being home in Eureka.

Family said when they last spoke to the couple, they said they were just outside of Spanish Fork. According to a post from Otteson’s aunt, family members are offering a reward of $2,000 for information that leads to the Jeep the couple was in.

Hunt said the reward has grown from $1,000 to $1,200 and is now $2,000. She said Sunday that the Civil Air Patrol is flying over the search area to assist efforts to locate the couple.

Sunday evening, the Juab County Sheriff’s Office issued a Endangered Missing Advisory for the pair. Anyone who sees the couple or their vehicle is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 435-623-1349.

The vehicle is a blue 1999 Jeep Cherokee with Utah license plate: 674 VWV. The photo below shows a Jeep similar to the one the pair were driving.

Family and other volunteers are coordinating search efforts through the “Searching For Breezy And Riley” Facebook page. Click here for more information about those efforts.
