I wonder if he tried to walk to town, or hitch a ride. How remote was the area where they were camping?

Halden Efren, 20, of Micronesia, doesn't speak English well and doesn't have his passport... He also has only been in the United States about a month and does not know the area. He had been staying with relatives in Salt Lake City...
Some 20 members of the Summit County search and rescue team and a state Department of Public Safety helicopter looked for Efren Sunday...
Efren is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, 170 pounds, with brown eyes and short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a red T-shirt, gray shorts, sandals, and a Chicago Bulls baseball cap. He was also carrying a backpack.

Officials believe Efren has left the Rockport area...
Crews do not believe Efren had access to a car so they say he’s most likely on foot or possibly hitchhiking.
On Tuesday, the search was expanded to include Interstate 80, about 3 miles to the north, and neighboring Summit County communities like Kamas and Park City.

Surveillance video taken from a convenience store near 150 South and 1300 West shows Efren was in Salt Lake City roughly three hours after he disappeared. Friends were able to positively identify him in the video, according to a statement from the Summit County Sheriff's Office.

Missing man home; didn’t know he was ‘missing’
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday that Halden Efren, 20, quietly returned on his own to his Salt Lake Valley home. Family members called the sheriff Wednesday night to let deputies know they could stop looking.
"We went out to visit him," Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Bridge said. "He didn’t even realize he was ‘missing.’ He said he’d gone on a walkabout with some new friends. He told us, ‘I’m an adult and I didn’t know I was supposed to check in with you.’ "
Efren thanked deputies for their concern, and bid them a good night, Bridge said.
About 10 a.m. Sunday, Efren’s family reported he had disappeared following an argument with his girlfriend. He was last seen walking along the Rockport Reservoir’s beach.
However, video security camera footage later showed Efren in a Salt Lake City convenience store Sunday afternoon; apparently he had caught a ride back from the park shortly after leaving his family’s campsite.
His family, and law enforcement, were concerned about Efren’s welfare because he had recently moved to Utah from Micronesia and has limited English skills.
