“Lost” Utah Hiker Winds Up in Jail

KSL reports Bryan Butas has wound up in a Utah jail on a charge of insurance fraud following a massive search for him in August when it was reported he was missing on a hiking trip.

Investigators tracked him to Australia. They say Butas tried to fake a disappearance so his children would get a 250-thousand dollar life insurance policy.
