5th Anniversary of disappearance of Staples Man

Web posted July 22, 2014
Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch reports the 5th Anniversary of the unresolved disappearance of Peter Achermann, of Staples, MN. The investigation into his disappearance continues and the reward for information has been extended.

On July 24, 2009 Peter Achermann left his residence to run errands and was last seen on Warner Rd, by the Crow Wing River Bridge between noon and 1pm. 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 25th. Despite extensive searches of the area, no trace of Peter has been found.

Burch reports that the Sheriff’s Office is working closely with the MN BCA and is committed to solving the disappearance. While several leads have been followed up on, there has been nothing substantial to help solve the disappearance. Investigators continue to follow up on leads and conduct interviews. The family thanked volunteers and the community for all their support. Franz Achermann said, “We are diligent about bringing Dad home and our work is not yet finished.”

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. Burch announced 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.
