Hostages found in Logan Canyon have been returned to their families, said Risten Thomas from the Utah Dept. of Agriculture. She said four of the five cattle thieves are in custody.

The identities of the victims and thieves have not yet been released.

Thomas said the Hyrum and Preston cattle thefts from earlier today are both connected to the hostage situation at the Cove in Logan Canyon.

Thomas said 200 head of cattle have been returned to their owners so far.

The fifth cattle thief is still on the loose Thomas said, and recent updates report the thief heading toward Logan in a high-speed car chase.

Thomas said she advises Logan residents to stay off the roads until the thief is caught.
