SANPETE COUNTY, Utah, July 17, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A 75-year-old Sanpete County man, missing since Monday, was located alive at about noon on Wednesday.
“Update: Clair Dorius was located today at about 12 p.m. approximately 9 miles northwest of Fayette,” a statement from the Sanpete Sheriff Department says.
