He is a psych/mental health nurse practitioner in the Salt Lake City area. Tough job.
From more recent pics on Facebook MSM posts, sounds like he also wears braces right now.
In his picture, he seems like such a kind man. I’m sure his family, coworkers, and patients are missing him. Would be nice to have more info about circumstances of disappearance.

There was some extremely wild weather up there yesterday. My DD lives on Wasatch Blvd. and kept texting me about it. Alot of water in a short amount of time. Extreme wind, hail, lightning. I hope this man is ok.

It looked ugly on the radar. To find the area, go to the top of the screen and click on "base maps" then "boundaries" which will put the state lines on the map. You can then use the selector on the left to enter date and time -which is in UTC (coordinated universal time), NOT the 24 hour clock). Radar Data

That's an amazing app. Thank you. I hope he wasn't washed off a trail. There are a lot of people on the trails today. Hopefully someone will spot him.
