UPDATE: Tyson was seen today at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center and was transferred to a Utah County hospital. He is in stable condition, but there is no news on why he was hospitalized.
Friends of Tyson Kayvon Cowboy are very concerned that he has been missing since he was last seen at Metro Bar late Thursday night/Friday morning. He has missed two shifts at his job and hasn’t returned home since 2:50 a.m. June 28.
Jordan Clements says that Cowboy and a group of friends were partying at Metro Bar late Thursday night. He was supposed to go home with one of the girls in the group, but said he was going to get a ride from someone else.
Mikki Whitworth and James Enoch spoke with Cowboy for a few hours after his other friends left and after the bar closed. Whitworth says Cowboy was “feeling aggressive” about the murder of his 14-year-old brother that he said was gay-related. All three left the Metro Bar parking lot at about 2:50 a.m. after Cowboy said, “Thank you for helping me think.” Whitworth and Enoch saw Cowboy walk alone north-east to the back parking lot area.
That was the last anyone, including his roommate, have seen of him.
Friends say that he is very passionate about his job at Macy’s City Creek Center, and would not simply stop going to work.
Friends have combed the area around Metro for any trace of him, but have come up with nothing.
A Salt Lake City detective has been assigned to the case, Case # 13-101165, though the detective is out of town for the rest of the week.
Cowboy is 27 years old, Native American/Chinese, brown hair and brown eyes, 5’8″, 120 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black or dark blue shirt with horizontal bars, black skinny jeans and brown sandals.
He has family in Washington State, but rarely talks with them.
Owners of Club Metro checked video footage and could not see Cowboy on any tape right before he left.
Anyone who may have information on his whereabouts should call the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000.
