In late January, Utah authorities called on the public to help them find Andrus, who was charged with multiple offenses relating to rape, sexual assault and exploitation of victims, including minors, in 2019 and 2020.

Clearfield Police detectives attempted to arrest Andrus in January, but he escaped and led officers on a high-speed hunt.
