A California man is now searching for his cat after his car was one of more than a hundred involved in a massive chain reaction crash on I-41 last Sunday.

Kevin Graves is a grad student from San Diego. His mother, Linda, tells NBC26 that he was on a road trip to celebrate graduation and to visit friends in Wisconsin. Kevin's mother says he brought his cat along to be part of the adventure.

On Sunday, Winnebago County authorities say 131 vehicles were involved in a chain reaction crash on I-41 near Neenah. Kevin's mother says his car was in the middle of the pile up and he received some bruises from the crash.

Kevin and his family are now in Wisconsin at the tow lot where all the involved vehicles were later taken after the crash. The family is searching the lot, hoping to find the cat.
