Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch reports the sixth anniversary of the unresolved disappearance of Peter Achermann of Staples occurred July 24.

The investigation into Achermann's disappearance continues and the reward for information has been extended.

On July 24, 2009, Achermann left his residence to run errands and was last seen on Warner Road, by the Crow Wing River bridge, between noon and 1 p.m. His vehicle, described as a light blue 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon, was located off County Road 32, at the end of a minimum maintenance road on July 25. Despite extensive searches of the area, no trace of Achermann has been found.

Burch reports that the sheriff's office continues to work closely with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and is committed to solving the disappearance. While several leads have been followed up on, there hasn't been anything substantial to help solve the disappearance.

Cass County Sheriff's Office investigators continue to follow up on leads and conduct interviews. The family thanks the volunteers and the community for all their support.

Burch announces that the reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the disappearance, if the disappearance is the result of foul play, will be extended.
