A sister of Cook’s said Friday that her brother suffers from a rare autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy and that he had not been feeling well at the time of his disappearance.

Cook attended Bloomington Hills Elementary School in St. George, his sister said, and is familiar with the Southern Utah area.

The Provo Police Department listed Cook as a missing and endangered person early Thursday afternoon.
