Family is searching for man still missing after 2018 Electric Forest Fest

Speaking with parents of Kevin Graves, Gary and Kathy.

ROTHBURY, Mich. -- The family of a man who disappeared after last year's Electric Forest Festival are back in town to keep his name out there.

Gary Graves and his wife, Kathy, traveled to Rothbury on Friday morning from their home on the east side of the state. They brought 500 flyers to pass out at the event's entrance gates.  On those flyers is their missing son, Kevin Graves.

Twenty-eight-year-old Graves disappeared during last year's festival. His family says he got into an argument with his girlfriend and walked away.  He has not been seen or heard from since.

Graves' father tells FOX 17, “They were arguing about something and the other two or three people there with him, they were arguing with him, they had him in tears. That's the way things were going.”

Kevin's sister and niece were also on site Friday passing out flyers.  Alexis Theeck, Kevin's niece, says, “I just want him found and to see my uncle again, spend time with him.”

Even if the family makes little headway this weekend, they plan to continue their efforts.

“I’d just love to hear his voice, I'd be happy. And know he’s OK. We’re not giving up. Yeah, we’re definitely not giving up,” his father says.

Electric Forest provided a statement to FOX 17 regarding the situation, saying, "The festival is in touch with Kevin Graves’ family, and is supporting their efforts to collect any information that might help them understand his possible whereabouts."

The family is offering a $5,000 reward for information regarding Kevin's whereabouts.

If you have any information to share, you are asked to contact the Michigan State Police Hart Post at (231) 873-2171.

      Kapeesh??!!??!! What an insensitive and arrogant person you are! The majority of people are well aware of what takes place during Electric Forest, so the majority doesn’t need your 2 sense especially as a smartass comment. Too much weed smoke to see him…really??? This is an outdoor venue, are you aware? Regardless, if any illegal substance was part of the disappearance, why should that even be brought up in the tone of reference from you??? Let me guess…you are perfect, and everyone you are related to or know is also perfect!?!?!? Had this man. been your son, nephew, cousin, brother, wouldn’t his life and his whereabouts be of the utmost importance?????

    Every wristband/ticket has an RFID tracking chip in it, did Electric Forest staff ever try tracking him using that? I have not heard this mentioned in any of the articles I have read about Kevin’s disappearance.
