Salt Lake County deputy sheriffs are investigating the disappearance of a gas-station clerk and money taken from the safe at the station.

A manager arrived at the Phillips 66 station, 4216 S. Redwood, at 6 a.m. Thursday and found the 24-hour store locked. The clerk who was on duty was missing, and a note on the door said the store would be closed until 6 a.m.An hour and a half later, an area manager arrived and unlocked the store. When the two entered, they found that the safe was open and money was missing. Also missing was the night clerk's car, described as a 1986 burgundy Toyota Corolla.

The missing man is Robert E. Lindsay, 28, Taylorsville. He is a nephew of Elder Richard P. Lindsay, a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The last receipt in the cash register was made at 2:03 a.m., so apparently something happened between then and 6 a.m.

A employee at the station told the Deseret News that the night clerk also had a good job during the day, he had recently received a raise and was a stable family man. He had been stationed behind bulletproof glass.
