Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Raymond, who also goes by Dean, left his residence on November 26, 2005 and was seen later that day in Millard County, UT. He told his sister that he was heading to his home in Boulder. A Millard County Sheriff's deputy reported stopping Shurtz near Fillmore around 4 p.m. But neither the police or his family knew he was heading in the wrong direction when he was stopped.
On November 28, 2005, witnesses saw his vehicle off the Ute Exit 80 off of I-15 in Nevada and saw a person with the vehicle though they could not recall the description of the person with the vehicle.
The vehicle was found on December 1, 2005 in the Valley of Fire between Mesquite and Las Vegas, Nevada. The truck, a green 1996 Ford Ranger, was found locked in a rest stop parking lot. Debit card transactions place Shurtz in Cedar City and again in Fillmore. The card has not been used since. Raymond suffers from early stages of Alzheimer's disease. He may be headed to Escalante, UT, Boulder, UT or to Arizona.
