EUREKA, Juab County — Officials have located a Jeep they say was driven by two teenagers who have been missing since Dec. 30.

Riley Powell, 18, and Breezy Otteson, 17, were planning to stop in Spanish Fork before going home to Eureka, where both teens live with Powell's grandfather.

Powell’s Jeep was located Thursday near Cherry Creek Reservoir in Juab County, Juab County Sheriff’s Office officials said via Facebook.

There were no signs of either teenager, though. Search efforts for the pair will continue, and investigators are following up on multiple leads, the sheriff’s office said.

Officials found the Jeep out of sight of the roadway. A Department of Public Safety air patrol crew located the vehicle.

Cadaver dogs and search and rescue crews searched the area.

Tooele County Sheriff's Lt. Ron Johnson said Powell was known to enjoy going exploring off-road. Officials believe the couple may have gone on a dirt road and become stuck.
