MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Cass County authorities are hoping a $20,000 reward will help solve the disappearance of an elderly Staples, Minn. man in 2009.

On July 24, 2009, Peter Achermann left his residence to run errands. He was last seen on Warner Road, by the Crow Wing River Bridge between noon and 1 p.m.

The next day, his vehicle – a light blue 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon – was located off County Road 32 at the end of a minimum maintenance road.

Despite extensive searches, no trace of Achermann has been found.

According to Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch, the reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible – if the disappearance is the result of foul play – will be extended.

Anyone with information, tips or leads on Achermann’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Cass County Sheriff’s Office at 800-450-2677, 218-547-1424 or 911.
