Band and his The Calling bandmates -- who split in 2005 but reportedly reunited just recently -- were in Lapeer for a music festival. Another member of the group (known for the song "Wherever You Will Go") reportedly noticed that the singer had gone missing on Sunday morning and then assembled a search party.
