Background on Kevin's Case;

Kevin was the kitchen manager at Flanagan's Bar and Grill in Des Moines, Iowa for several years. After working the night shift on the evening of July 17th, he and his co-workers/friends first went home to their apartment that they shared and decided to go to the Royal Mile Club utilizing one of the friend's vehicle.

According to the police report made by one of Kevin's friends, who flagged down the police at 11:15pm of the 18th of July,. he stated that Kevin went off on his own at about 2:15am, (bars close at 2am).

Kevin never returned to his apartment as far as anyone can tell. It is unknown exactly how much money he may have had on him at the time of his disappearance. Furthermore, he had no credit cards of his own, and he left a car behind (he didn't have a driver's license).

The one thing that strikes the family as odd, is that Kevin's watch was found in his friend's vehicle. This is atypical of Kevin. He NEVER took it off, other than to take a shower or to go to bed (although he'd sleep with it on periodically).

He was not known by any of his friends to utilize drugs, as alcohol was his drug of choice. He did have a drinking problem.
