Dylan Rounds Disappearance
The last confirmed sighting of Dylan Rounds was at the Saddle Sore Bar in Montello, Nevada on the evening of May 26, 2022. The bar is located about 30 miles west of Lucin, Utah, where Dylan was living and working on his families farm.
On the morning of May 28, 2022, Dylan spoke to his maternal grandmother on the phone, stating he would call her back later that day. Dylan never called her back, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
His family became worried when they hadn’t heard from him, and reported him missing to the Box County Sheriff’s Office on May 30, 2022.
On May 30, 2022, the day he was reported missing, Dylan’s boots were found approximately 100 yards from where his grain truck was parked (about 5 miles west of the farm), appearing as if they had been casually tossed out.
Detectives told Dylan’s mother that it appeared the boots had a drop of blood on them, and that they would be sent off for testing. They were sent off to the lab on June 6.
Law enforcement confirmed the last activity on Dylan’s cell phone was the call he made to his grandmother on the morning of May 28, 2022, and that it was made near his farm. The last ping on his phone was at 3:41 pm that afternoon, and it was at or within 15 miles of the farm.

There has been no activity on his cell phone or credit card since he went missing. None of the vehicles on the farm were missing, and his personal belongings were all left behind. However, his cell phone and wallet have not been located.
