Earlier in the evening Miller tried to leave in his car when his roommates stopped him.

He later left on foot wearing jeans, a T-shirt and possibly slippers.

Several agencies, including Salt Lake County Search and Rescue, helped look for Miller on foot with dogs and the help on a helicopter.

The search was called off early this morning due to the cold.
