Police discovered that her home was ransacked and her car had been abandoned in a parking garage.
Authorities say Graves was last seen at her home the night of December 4. A few days later, on December 8, a friend was unable to get a hold of her and requested a welfare check.
When police arrived at her home no one answered and her car was also missing.
Two days later, her friend who was still concerned entered her home and called the cops to say Graves’ place had been ransacked.

Detectives working on her disappearance eventually found her red RAV4 SUV abandoned in a parking garage three days later.
Fort Collins Police told CBS Denver the car had likely been driven by someone else following her disappearance.
Police have not said if they have identified any suspects.
‘At this point we need the community’s help figuring out what happened and finding justice for Kimberlee,’ said Kate Kimble, a spokeswoman for the Fort Collins Police Department.

At the time of her disappearance, a friend and neighbor for about eight years spoke to the media to say that he was concerned about the people Graves was associating with.
‘Too friendly. People in her house all the time. She had a nice 2015 RAV4 and she would just let people drive it. Next thing I know it was side swiped, the window was broken out. I see someone keyed bad words into her door,’ said Cordova to KDVR. ‘I kind of got onto her about trusting people too much and now look.’
