(KUTV) -- The Sandy City Police Department is seeking the public's help locating two missing people.

Jan Pearson-Jenkins allegedly went camping in the area of Eureka and Silver City with Cody Young, according to Sgt. Jason Nielsen with the Sandy City Police Department.

She was last seen by her mother on Oct. 4, the day she left for the camping trip.

Jenkins' family hasn't heard from her since Oct. 5.

Young messaged Jenkins' family to let them know that the pair had an argument. He told the family he had left Jenkins in the area.

Jenkins did not take her purse or cell phone with her on the camping trip. She was also not dress appropriately for cold weather, a press release stated.

Juab County checked the last known area where Jenkins was suspected of being, which was a remote area. They found no sign of Jenkins.

The nearest town to her supposed last known location is Silver City, a ghost town and the nearest real town of Eureka, which is 4 miles away.

Police have not been able to locate Cody to speak to him about Jenkins.

Jenkins is a 64-year-old Caucasian woman who is 5 feet 3 inches and 130 pounds. She has short grayish-brown hair and walks slightly hunched over, a press release stated. She also has two 10-inch scars on the her right arm.

Young is described as a Caucasian man in his mid-40s. He is about 5 feet 5 inches tall. Young has a little facial hair, golden-brown hair in a ponytail and wears glasses.

Police believe Young was driving an older dark-colored van with Tennessee plates. The vehicle is possibly from the 1980s, and is registered with Arizona license plate CGA3392.

Anyone who recognizes these individuals or has any information should contact Sandy Police at 801-568-7200.
