  • Details of Disappearance
    Garrett was last seen at approximately 8 a.m. on August 20, 2004 at Cuberant Lake in the Uinta Mountains of Utah. He was fishing with his father when his feet got wet so he started to walk back to the campsite to change his shoes. He never arrived at the campsite. Garrett had successfully passed his outdoor training courses offered by the Utah National Park Council, and this trip was sponsored by his church as a part of the wilderness training program for his Boy Scout Troop.

    The day Garrett disappeared, the temperature was near freezing and it had rained and hailed during the night. His family believes he may have been abducted. No trace of Garrett has been found.
