Some interesting background on Lucin.

Google Maps shows the Lucin Airport referred to on the wiki page. There are some photos posted, too (ETA - of Lucin, not of the airport). A zoomed in shot shows Zdarsky's hangar/residence. I wonder if there's a possibility Mr. Zdarsky has surveillance/trail cameras around his 400 acres which might have caught images of Dylan? I certainly hope so.

Katie Wells of Rigby tells EastIdahoNews.com her nephew, Dylan Rounds, was last seen Saturday in Lucin, Utah, on the farm where he is working. Rounds apparently called several family members last Wednesday after having a “weird run-in” with a guy on a gravel road.

“The man was walking down the gravel road barefoot. He flagged Dylan down, who was in his truck. 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,” Wells explains.


Wells says the man was spotted in Montello, Nevada several days later asking about Dylan and there are reports that the man got a ride to Dylan’s trailer on Saturday.

EastIdahoNews.com reached out to the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling the investigation. We were unable to reach the detective assigned to the case.


“We don’t believe anything was ransacked,” Wells explains. “Dylan is missing, his phone is missing and his wallet.”

Noting Dylan’s age, Wells says some people seem to think Dylan ran off, but she suspects foul play.

“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. He never dated in high school. He’s not your typical 19-year-old,” Wells says.


Dylan’s mom, Candice Cooley, lives in Twin Falls and his dad, Justin Rounds, lives in Ucon. They are actively involved in the search and are offering a $20,000 reward to anyone who finds him or knows where he might be.

Thank God this finally came out! I'm hoping LE names a POI soon. Unfortunately, this likely may not have a good outcome, imo. :( Thanks for posting the article.

Very strange situation. Certainly praying that Dylan is found and safe. Hopefully LE will step up and clear up some of the conflicting story lines. I take what’s written by East Idaho News with a large grain of salt.

“An investigation into his disappearance and whereabouts is ongoing,” said a post from the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Department.
Anyone with information may contact them at 435-723-5227 or the Elko County Sheriff’s Department, which has also been advised about the missing person report.
“All the information we are getting leads us to believe he is still in Utah,” said Undersheriff Justin Ames.
