BOULDER CITY (KLAS) — A Boulder City man and the dog he was traveling with have both been found safe, following tips that came in through social media.
Dylan Graham had been missing since Monday, along with his roommate’s dog, Arthur. Graham’s roommate, Jacob Gillies thanked the community for responses that came in through Facebook.
“Thank you so very much to every single person that helped make this possible,” wrote Gillies in a statement. “This really teaches us the power of social media when it comes to helping in our community.”
Gillies declined to say where Graham was found or why he went missing, calling it a matter of privacy for those involved. He did reiterate that both Graham and the dog were safe.
Gillies also thanked the work of a local non-profit group called Missing Justice. That group’s founder, Jessica Bower, said the type of frantic search that led to Graham is not unique.
According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, five to seven people are reported missing every day, on average, in Las Vegas.
“Some of them are found, yes,” Bower told 8 News Now. “But all of them are different.”
She said when men in particular disappear, their cases aren’t always talked about, so it’s important to pay attention to every detail.
“If there’s no signs pointing to them planning they were going to do this,” Bower added. “There could be a real problem.”
