Before being located, his wife Jill Graham in an emotional message on Facebook said, “My husband, Mike Graham, went missing early this morning. His last known location was in a parking lot near his place of work in between Hawkeye Drive and highway 965 in North Liberty, IA…He’s 37 years old, 5’7″, weighs approximately 160lbs, has brown hair (shaved) and brown eyes. The local police department was able to ping his phone on the boarder of Keokuk and Washington County in Iowa around 1:15pm this afternoon. We have since lost his location and believe his phone is shut off”.
“We are unable to locate his vehicle, so we assume he is with it. It’s a black 2016 Volkswagen Jetta with the license plate ELL-592…I’ve filled out a national missing persons report on him. Please, please share this information. He has four children and a wife who are beyond eager to have him home with us” said Jill.
