Missing Person Utah Tanner Oblad
The body of Tanner Oblad was found by a Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter in the foothills south of Herriman. He was laying close to a trail. The authorities stated no foul play is suspected. There will be an examination by the coroner.
Tanner Oblad, 19, has been missing from Herriman, Utah since February 21, 2018. He told his sister he was going to class at the Taylorsville campus of Salt Lake Community College, but he never showed up.
Authorities are looking for a blue or black Chevy pickup truck that a neighbor saw Tanner get into.
Although Tanner said he was going to class, he left his wallet and phone behind.
“He usually has his phone and he usually has his wallet and he usually stays in contact with us all the time,” Tanner’s dad, Adam Oblad told KUTV news.
Tanner is a high functioning autistic teen and Adam also stated that Tanner is honest and habitual and communicates with the family daily. He had noticed that Adam seemed to be depressed over the last few weeks. Then Adam says something that is a scary thought for any parent.
“If somebody did pick up my son, and it was planned that means that person was talking to my son previously, and who knows what he was telling him. Maybe that’s why my son was going through such a hard time these last couple of weeks,” said Adam.
Since you’re here
I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share. I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
