SPANISH FORK — Utah County Sheriff's Deputy Greer Haymond is looking for a young man who didn't commit a crime but instead tried to offer an act of kindness.

Around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Haymond went to In-N-Out Burger in Spanish Fork at the beginning of his shift. While he waited in the drive-thru line, he was on a call with a co-worker discussing a case they were working on.

In a video posted on the Utah County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, Haymond explains that during the phone call he heard a knock on his window and a young man asked if he could pay for Haymond's meal. But because he was distracted by his phone call, Haymond said he told the young man "I'm good. Thank you, though."

Later in the afternoon, Haymond filmed and posted the video in which he apologized to the young man.

"I didn't give you the attention, one, that you deserved; and, two, I want to apologize for denying you an act of kindness," Haymond says in the video.

The sheriff's deputy is now asking for the public's help in finding the young man so he can take him out for a meal to show his appreciation for his kindness. The young man was in a white Jeep Wrangler with his parents, Haymond said.

If you know who the young man is, the Utah County Sheriff's Office asks you call St. Spencer Cannon at 801-404-1912.
