Missing Kamas man found unharmed
A missing Kamas man who family members had sought the public’s help in finding has been located unharmed in Salt Lake City.
Utah High Patrol troopers located Cody Lewis, age 24, in Salt Lake City Friday evening. According to Summit County Sheriff’s Office call logs, he was "found to be in good health." UHP located Lewis from his bank activity.
Aubrey Papworth, who has a 1-year-old son with Lewis, said he’s "safe, but has some stuff to work through."
"He’s been through a lot," Papworth said. "Right now he’s experienced something tragic and I’m just trying to be gentle."
As previously reported in The Park Record, Lewis’ grandfather, who had been suffering from cancer, recently passed away.
On a flyer that was distributed last week, it said Lewis "may be in the Salt Lake area." However, Papworth did not know where he had been or who he was with.
"I’m just relieved he’s back," Papworth said. "He’s in good hands right now."
Papworth contacted The Park Record and local law enforcement officials when Lewis failed to return to their Kamas home following a hike on Tuesday, July 14. Lewis had gone hiking with his two dogs near the Jordanelle Reservoir and hadn’t been seen since.
He was listed on a national crime information base as "missing and endangered." But he has since been removed from the list and the case is now considered closed.
Meredith Reed was elected to a two-year term as chair of the Summit County Democratic Party and said she sees an opportunity to ride the so-called blue wave that saw a Democratic surge nationally and within the state.
