Missing in Michigan - Ken Gruno

Ken Gruno went mysteriously missing in Michigan on the evening of December 27th 2014, after stepping outside a pub for a breath of fresh air. The 27-year-old left behind his coat and credit card, and a group of bewildered mates.

Since Gruno's unexplained disappearance, family, friends and police have conducted numerous searches of the neighborhood and even the nearby riverbanks.

Now, however, bad weather and subzero temperatures are seriously hampering their efforts to find the missing man, and the major search which was to be launched today has had to be postponed for fear that participants may be harmed in the process.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0089HD4A4Ken Gruno was celebrating the holidays with friends at the Otisville Hotel bar in the 100 block of West Main Street in northern Genesee County, where he appears to have somehow completely dematerialized -- he has not been seen or heard from since that night.

"It's completely out of his character," say those who know him best. "He's always in contact with someone, or on his computer." 

Gruno is approximately 6-feet tall and 175 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, a gray flannel shirt with a vest and bowtie, and slip-on work boots. Anyone with information regarding his bizarre disappearance is asked to call the Michigan State Police Flint post at 810-732-1111.

  1. Mr. Rox, if you don't mind me asking, how do you gain the information on these missing people? Is it from other media outlets or a contact in law enforcement? Other than that I'd like to say that I enjoy your blog, and hope that law enforcement will pick up on your theories and reinvestigate.

  2. Ken was found this morning in an icy pond about a mile from the bar he disappeared from. They're doing an autopsy now. I had never heard of Smiley Face before but wow... everything is spot on.

    1. Thanks, Anonymous. Watching this one for more info now. (What do you bet they find "no foul play" in his winter drowning too.)


  3. It is so strange that I was looking at Ken name a few days ago that I had wrote down on paper about a few months ago and I was thinking about what could of happen to him. I had a insight of Ken being a computer wiz and very good at card games and Ken had secret haters.I see a vision of some one watching Ken out doors and up to no good and eyes on him from some trees near the woods and danger around Ken and I see he was taken and killed and place in water.I had a quick flash of Joseph Formica Jr. Come through my phone as I was looking at Joseph picture when he disappear and I thought of Ken.
