RICH COUNTY — Law enforcement is asking for the public’s help to find a missing teenager after she reportedly ran off with an adult man, with whom she had been talking to online.

According to a “missing and endangered” alert from the Utah Department of Public Safety, the Rich County Sheriff’s Office said 16-year-old Stormy Wilkinson was last seen at Bear Lake Laundry in Garden City, where she works.

Deputies say a man, who has not been identified, showed up at her work on Sunday, and she left with him around 4:20 p.m. She reportedly messaged her parents and told them she would not be coming home.

Wilkinson is described as 5’6″ to 5’8″, 165 pounds, with black hair, hazel eyes, and “fair complexion.” She was wearing a black tank top and dark blue jeans, and was carrying a small black backpack-style purse.

Deputies report the suspect as a man with short, brown hair, scruffy facial hair, and a large scratch on the left side of his face. He was wearing a gray and white Western-style shirt and a dark-colored hat with the word “NOMAD” on it.

It is believed that he is in his 20s and from North Dakota. Authorities said he may have even driven from there to pick her up.

Deputies believe the two are in a red or maroon-colored car with a white front bumper. Photos of the vehicle showed damage to the rear bumper.
