EMERY COUNTY, Utah, June 30, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Emery County Sheriff’s Office confirmed a 45-year-old man missing from Huntington since Wednesday afternoon has been found safe.
Charles Jensen was located Friday morning by law enforcement from ECSO and the Department of Public Safety about a mile up Huntington Canyon.
Deputies were alerted of his possible whereabouts Thursday night after citizens from Emery County traveling through the canyon found his truck and called police.
Law enforcement officers stayed by the truck throughout the night and headed out to search for him at the first sign of light Friday morning.
The Utah DPS helicopter arrived on scene to began searching from the air with ECSO personnel on board. Jensen was found safe about a mile from where his truck was found.
Jensen was safe, but confused, and was transported to Castleview Hospital for evaluation. He is expected to recover.
A search started for Jensen after his family had been unable to reach him while he traveled to Salina Wednesday. By Thursday, when they still had not heard from him, they contacted the Emery County Sheriff’s Office to report him missing.
