The Elvis Is Alive Museum is once again for sale on eBay. The museum's owner, Andy Key of Mississippi, says military duties will keep him away from home for at least five months.

The 39-year-old Key set a minimum starting bid of $15,000 on the listing, which ends Friday. He bought the museum on eBay last year for $8,300.

Key told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hopes someone local buys the contents of the museum and continues running it in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The collection includes photographs, books, FBI files, DNA reports and other memorabilia that aim to support the theory that Elvis never died.

Bill Beeny, a Baptist minister who founded the museum in 1990 in Missouri, says he has no plans to buy it back.
