Original Story: Paul Swenson, 30, is missing from American Fork, Utah. He was seen on Thursday July 27, 2017 around 3 p.m. at his home. He left for an appointment driving his black 2016 BMW X6 to Salt Lake County but he never made the appointment, according to the Daily Herald. His family determined on Thursday night he was near 4700 S. 900 East in Salt Lake City. His cellphone has since been turned off. The car was found abandoned near Parkview Elementary near Jordan Park in Salt Lake City. What was strange was that there were items in the car that the family said did not belong to Paul.
“Yeah, we found a thing of alcohol that didn’t belong to Paul, it wasn’t, he didn’t have that and so just random people’s clothing and materials and things, so whoever was in that car it wasn’t Paul,” Cody Wilding, best friend of Paul Swenson told Fox 13 news.
Swenson is a white male, weighs about 190 pounds, is 6 feet tall, and has red hair and hazel eyes. He was wearing a gray short-sleeve shirt, black jeans and black Converse shoes. He also has a half-sleeve of tattoos on his right arm.
