The family of a missing Myrtle Beach man says with every passing day it gets harder not knowing if he is dead or alive.
The former trainer for the Coastal Carolina University football team was last seen at a Sumter nightclub and police suspect a crime may be involved in 24-year-old Brandon Graves' disappearance.
"Whoever, wherever, please send Brandon home to us please send him home," said Lois German in a tearful plea for information about her son.
Brandon Graves was last seen January 30, 2010. He had attended Morris College's homecoming festivities in Sumter. Police say he later went to Sabastian's Nightclub where he was removed by bouncers. He hasn't been seen since.
"It is very out of his character for him to come up missing and just dissolve everywhere," said Lorenzo Graves, Brandon's brother.
Police in Sumter County suspect a crime maybe involved in Brandon's disappearance, and that's what's so disturbing to his relatives. The family says every time the phone rings, they get anxious. "I think I'm going to listen to Brandon saying come pick me up. He's in my voicemail. Everyday from not hearing from him, I have to turn my phone on and listen to his voice," said Brandon's brother Larry German.
Lois longs to hear her son's voice just one more time. "God, wherever he may be, please God put a shield around him and bring him home to us."
Brandon lives in Myrtle Beach and graduated from CCU. His family says he came home to Dillon every weekend to be with them and go to church.
