HYRUM, Utah – Missing livestock were reported in both Hyrum and Preston this morning. With 23 cows missing from Hyrum, and 23 cows with one goat are missing from Preston, Idaho, cache county brand inspector Lisa Thompson is unsure if the thefts are linked.

“All we know, is someone heard a trailer drive by this morning,” Thompson said. “We’re trying to work together to find a full size report.”

The livestock has disappeared at various times of the day– early morning, late night and even in the middle of the day, Thompson said.

Thompson is calling auctions in Idaho, Wyo. and Colo. to see if the missing livestock are being sold. She is working on tracking down where the thefts may occur next.
