Comment on this story

Officers have looked for Joseph Tukuafu and William Pauni in "all of their known locations" but have not found them, Provo police reported, adding that the men are believed to be dangerous.

A man told officers that the pair was to pick him up at a FrontRunner station, said Provo detective Nick Dupaix. But when the man got inside their car, he was hit in the head and woke up in a room at a Super 8 Hotel at 1555 N. Canyon Road.

The victim managed to force his way out of the room. His alleged attackers fled in a blue van that may have been a Chrysler or a Dodge, Dupaix said.

The man who reported the incident has not been identified by police.
