County Sheriff’s Report

Summit County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue volunteers searched several hours for a missing boy on June 14 after bones were reportedly spotted in the area he became lost.

An Ohio man claimed he saw the bones in the Cuberant Lake Basin in the Uinta Mountains near where Utah County resident Garrett Bardsley, 12, was separated from his Boy Scout group in 2004.

Bardsley hasn’t been seen since.

"He said that he saw the bones in a stream," Summit County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said.

But no sign of Bardsley was found during this month’s search.

Meanwhile, a mother in Coalville helped diffuse a dispute between her husband and son before deputies arrived at the family’s home on June 9.

The 17-year-old boy allegedly threatened his father with an air rifle but never fired the gun, Farnsworth said.

"The father confronted the son about some money that was missing from the family business," he said, adding that the father called dispatch after the boy had retrieved the weapon. "The mother had arrived home prior to the deputies getting there and had taken the gun from the son."

The boy was arrested for aggravated assault and taken to juvenile detention in Salt Lake County, Farnsworth said, adding, "nobody got hurt."
