    Details of Disappearance

    Jaydan was last seen in Carbon County, Utah on July 30, 2006. He was traveling in a van with his parents, his three-year-old sister Brookland, and his five-year-old brother Levi. A photo of Levi is posted below this case summary. The Seal family visited a relative in Helper, Utah and were on their way home when their Ford Bronco was swept away by a 20-foot wall of wash in Garley Canyon. The vehicle rolled several times and was carried nearly a mile downstream. When it finally came to a stop, Levi was trapped underneath it and Jaydan had disappeared. Brookland and Levi were taken to the hospital. Brookland stayed there for a week getting treated for her injuries, but Levi died.

    An extensive search of the canyon turned up no sign of Jaydan, who is presumed to have perished in the accident. His body may be buried under three to four feet of silt.
