After The Burial Guitarist Justin Lowe Allegedly Declared A ‘Missing Person’, Search Underway


After a disturbing statement that heavily suggested mental illness announced his departure from After The Burial, the bands guitarist Justin Lowe has now reportedly gone missing. The band themselves previously confirmed that Lowe is “ill”. His sister made two posts about Lowe‘s current status over the past few days, offering the following on Saturday, July 18th:

“My brother Justin went missing this morning. His car has been located and he has been declared a missing person. An extensive search was done today in the area that his car was found in and will continue tomorrow morning. At this time, I ask that you please respect our privacy as we go through this devastating experience. At the same time, we ask for prayers that he is found and safe. As I’m sure there will be many of you messaging me, please know that I am reading them and appreciating your concern, but may not reply. I will continue to post updates as I have them. At this time, the authorities have not asked for the public’s assistance in searching. The area is unsafe and they have every park ranger and sherif assisting in the search. If that changes, I will let everyone know.”

She also provided the following statement last night

“The search has been completed for today. The ground around the area his car was found has been searched completely. [We] went and walked the trails and along the shore of the St. Croix today, but did not find any sign of him. All search efforts tomorrow will be in the river. We are very impressed with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Park Rangers who have coordinated the search efforts. They are working day and night to find my brother. Thank you to everyone for their prayers.”
