SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Police say a man who's been missing since his vehicle broke down in a remote corner of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation on Nov. 25 has been reported near Cedar City.
Ute Indian Tribe authorities say a recent lead puts Charles Reed Chapoose, who goes by the nickname "Cheeze" and "Charlie," in the area.
He had been driving to the Hill Creek area to guide elk hunters when his truck apparently broke down near the Santio Ranch, where it was found. Footprints indicated that he may have walked north from the scene.
The tribe is offering a reward of $5,000 to anyone who provides information leading to Chapoose being found. He is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 215 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black Reebok hooded pullover with jeans, hat and sunglasses.
Anyone with information should call the Bureau of Indian Affairs police at 435-722-2012.
