Officials have identified the two fishermen missing from their boat on Strawberry Reservoir and as of
Sunday evening
the search continues. Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office shared Friday that the names of the two missing brothers, who are in their 60’s and 70’s, are James Gardiner and Mark Gardiner, both of Utah County. The search began when a call came in to 9-1-1 on Thursday reporting an unoccupied boat that had drifted to shore near the Ladders with the boat motor still running. Deputies and State Park Rangers responded but were unable to locate the owner or occupants of the boat. Search crews include sonar boat teams on Strawberry Reservoir as well as search dogs on the land in hopes that one or both men made it to shore.
