MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. — It's been 3 years since Justin Holt disappeared from his home in rural Muskegon County. His friends and family are still looking for answers.

“Confusing. I don’t understand how he could just disappear, and nobody knows nothing and no clue of what happened to him,” said Justin's brother, Brent Holt.

Holt hasn't been seen since Jan. 3, 2018. Spats of blood outside his home in Cedar Creek Township were found. Detectives with the Sheriff's Office searched near Clear Lake 3 times. Despite the efforts of investigators and loved ones, there have been no new clues into what happened to Holt.

“Millionaires can’t disappear, without eventually being found. There’s no way Justin up and disappeared. Especially when he doesn’t have the money to do something like that. He sure wouldn’t have left everything behind.”

Family says Holt left behind his wallet, keys, glasses and pack of cigarettes. The back door to his house was found open in 2018. His truck was parked in the driveway.

But Holt's brother says he will never stop looking.

“You gotta keep the hope alive, some way, so there’d be some sort of closure. If he is alive or dead or whatever... he still needs to be found. We still need some kind of answer to the situation.”
