DUGWAY PROVING GROUND — The Army is searching for a missing soldier on this expansive military range who used his cell phone to report he was without shoes and is possibly using his shirt as footwear.
The soldier said he had run out of gas and was walking to the test area, said Dugway spokeswoman Paula Thomas. "Apparently he was wearing flip-flops prior to losing them.
Base officials say Bushling was wearing flip-flops and driving a black 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer. His flip-flops have since been recovered by the Army.

There definitely has to be more to the story. I'd assume if he'd run out of gas he would've been driving along a road. Why would he not just walk back along the same road - and then he should be pretty easy to find? And how exactly do you lose your shoes? I understand flip flops are not that great for walking in and can slip off...but why not just slip them back on? I don't know, perhaps they just haven't published all the info yet
