Police: 1 person in custody in missing Utah student case
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say one person has been taken into custody in the case of a Utah college student who disappeared 11 days ago.
Salt Lake City police said the person was brought in Friday morning, but did not immediately provide further details ahead of a planned news conference.
The news comes a day after police finished using shovels and dogs in their search of a home belonging to a man they called a “person of interest” in the case. They also removed a vehicle from the man’s home. Investigators have also been searching for a mattress given away from the home last week.
Mackenzie Lueck disappeared after taking a Lyft June 17 from the airport to a park. Police said she met an unidentified person at 3 a.m.
