My client happened to be an Electrician and he decided to open a few receptacles while I was going through the kitchen.
I normally just check with three light tester but may decide to upgrade after his find.

Note: pay attention to him confirming that the conduit is open and not capable of being used as a ground unless the break is found.
Turns out he could not locate the issue while there as it may be in a wall.
