    My mother was just telling me about this case. It's somehow slid past my radar even though I'm a Nor Michigander. My thoughts immediately went to the vast amounts of young men that go missing after partying... He fits the age, the body type, etc. Really hoping I'm wrong and that he's just gone somewhere needing to cool off.

    I wonder why there isn’t more information re: what the gf knows. She was apparently the last known person to interact with him....
    They argued - why, about what? What was his state of mind when he “went back to the tent”?
    How long after he left her did she go back to the tent? Did she look for him when he wasn’t there? Was he drunk? Under the influence of any drugs?
    How did they get to the festival? If they drove, was the car also missing?

    On Monday, a group of about 15 people started a new search for Kevin Graves around 9:30 a.m. at the festival grounds. The only thing they found was a cell phone, which they don’t believe belongs to Graves.

    The search will continue Saturday.

    The family says Electric Forest organizers have not aided the search and law enforcement hasn't found any sign of him.

    wasn't there a post here yesterday confirming he'd been found safe? I mean, I guess not but what am I recalling then?

    There was another guy missing from the same festival who was found safe. That’s probably what you’re remembering.

    Or maybe not. What do they expect the organisers to do?

    If this festival was anything like those in the UK there would have been a massive clean up required after the event.

    This is what happens to all the tents left behind at Glastonbury
    Glastonbury clean-up costing £785,000 and lasting six weeks begins as 200,000 festival-goers head home leaving behind mounds of rubbish

    However long the clean up took in this case, it would be obvious by the end of it that Kevin was no longer on the site.

    For comparison, Sven Blumquist recently went missing from the Blue Heron Music Festival in NY, and the organizers shared the flyer repeatedly on social media and volunteered to help search. This is not the first person who has died or gone missing from EFM, and I am certain they would prefer they not be associated with Kevin's going missing, which is unfortunate because they are in a great position to help.

    It bothers me so much that the venue is not assisting with the search activities. It’s just wrong, IMO.

    “Today there are in excess of 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) of ranch property, three large lakes, the Thoroughbred Golf Club (1993), Sundance Saloon & Steakhouse (1996), Back Forty resort for kids and families (1998), and most recently the 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m2) Gold Rush Indoor Waterpark and adjoining condo rental suites (2006).”
    Double JJ Resort - Wikipedia


    Kevin could very well still be on the property (e.g., he could have fallen into one of the lakes), IMO.

    Read an article yesterday saying there's evidence leading them to believe he's still alive. Trying to find it now...

    A woman reported that a man matching Graves' description was seen at the San Marco's Mexican Restaurant on East Colby Street about three days after his disappearance. Searchers went to the restaurant, where an employee remembered the barefoot man in dirty tan shorts using the establishment's phone for about a half hour. The first woman reported the man seemed to be under the influence of drugs, and was arguing with someone on the phone. She said the man also had been begging outside the restaurant.

    A friend of his from California was staying in the Rodeway Inn adjacent to the San Marcos restaurant. A pair of tan shorts was found outside that hotel. The friend from California is not answering his cell phone, which may be turned off.

    The restaurant and hotel are located, is about 10 miles from the site of the music festival..

    Several people close to the case, including police and at least one friend who attended the festival with Graves, believe he is still alive; he just doesn't want to be found.

    Over the last couple weeks, Graves' sister received an influx of messages, nearly 100, from people speculating Graves may have joined an insulated religious group known as the Twelve Tribes.

    Police, who have received similar tips, say there's no evidence to support that theory.

    The fundamentalist Christian faction, deemed by some to be a cult, was formed by leader Elbert Eugene Spriggs in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the 1970s. It now has an estimated 3,000 members living on communes in multiple continents with heavy concentrations in New England and Canada.
