ROTHBURY — It has been over two and a half months since Electric Forest Festival attendee Kevin Graves, 28, of Oakland County was reported missing.

Several private searches of the Double JJ Resort, the venue where the festival is held, have not led to his discovery.

A private, non-profit organization, Shiawassee Search and Rescue, conducted a search for Graves last weekend, according to the “Help Us Find Kevin Graves” Facebook page.

“SSAR (Shiawassee Search and Rescue) along with family members of Kevin Graves conducted a private search of a nearby swamp and a couple of dead end roads within Double JJ Ranch property this last weekend,” states the Facebook post. “Sadly, they were unable to locate Kevin. Please keep his family and friends, as well as SSAR, in your prayers. Quitting or giving up is not an option for any of them. They will continue to follow leads regarding the whereabouts of Kevin until he is located.”

Graves’ family is offering a $10,000 reward for his return.

The case is being handled by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Highland Township Outpost, with assistance from the Michigan State Police.

“I do not have any updates in reference to Mr. Graves,” said Sgt. David Bach of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Highland Township Outpost. “The state police are still looking into any tips they’re receiving and any tips the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office have been looking into, but none of them panned out in reference to finding Mr. Graves.”

Kevin Graves has sandy blond hair and blue eyes and is about 6-feet tall and 185 pounds with a medium build. He has a USMC tattoo on his left shoulder.

Anyone with information about Graves’ whereabouts is asked to call the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office at (248) 858-4950, the Michigan State Police Hart Post (231) 873-2171, or Mason-Oceana 911 (231) 869-5858.
