OTISVILLE, Mich. (AP) - Investigators are stumped about the disappearance of a 27-year-old man who stepped outside of a bar in a small Michigan town late last month and didn’t return.

Ken Gruno had a credit card with him, but he left his coat behind when he stepped outside of the Otisville Hotel Bar in Otisville, 70 miles north of Detroit, in the early hours of Dec. 27.

The card hasn’t been used, said Gruno’s wife, Kelsea Etson.

Gruno, a student at Wayne State University, was visiting with high school pals at the bar. Etson said organized searches have been called off and won’t resume until there are solid tips.

“He’s seen on video walking away from the (bar) under his own power. Then there’s no trace,” said Det. Sgt. David Van Singel of the Michigan State Police. “We have not had a single credible lead come in. We’ve had no developments.”

Gruno is described as 5 feet 11 inches tall, 175 pounds and wearing blue jeans, a shirt, a vest and a bowtie.

Searchers have “walked most of the roadways in northeastern Genesee County, and we followed up on potential locations outside Genesee County,” Van Singel said.

Anyone with information can call (810) 732-1111.
