Help Find Paul Swenson

In my wildest dreams, I never could have fathomed the nightmare that has now become my reality. You have no idea how long the dark lasts until you cannot close your eyes to it. My best friend is missing. A father, husband, son, cousin, uncle, and brother is missing.

On July 27th, Paul Swenson, went missing in Salt Lake City, Utah under suspicious circumstances. Unfortunately, the initial investigation has not provided credible leads. Our estimated daily costs to continue our critical search is close to $2,300 per day. In order to keep our effort and momentum moving forward for the next ten days, we are pleading for your help. 

Also, even though we are hopeful, we do not know what the future may hold. We want to ensure that Paul’s wife of six years and his sweet seven-month-old daughter are well taken care of as we strive to return Paul home.

We would like to share a sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of our family, friends, and outstanding members of the community. The outpour of support, searchers, resources, and love have been truly resounding. Our gratitude could not be expressed in words. Thank you for being our light and hope during this difficult and heavy time. 

“You can love someone so much, but you can never love people as much as you can miss them.” John Green
