Trib Total Media offering reward for information on missing employee last seen around Memorial Day
Trib Total Media is offering a reward for information that leads to the whereabouts of a company employee who was last seen around Memorial Day.
Dan Niehaus, 59, of Penn Hills called off sick a couple of days before the holiday weekend, then returned to work for one day before calling off sick again on May 28, said Jennifer Bertetto, Trib Total Media vice president and COO.
“No one has seen him or heard from him as far as we can tell since then,” Bertetto said. “We are very concerned.”
Niehaus has worked as an inserter at the company's West Deer facility since November 2005. Originally from Wheeling, W.Va., Niehaus bought a house in Penn Hills several years ago, said his sister, Donna Milliken of Wheeling.
She said she last spoke to her brother about three weeks ago. The family filed a missing person's report with Penn Hills police.
Officers went by Niehaus' Lime Hollow Road home, she said. They found his truck but no sign of Niehaus.
“This is not like him at all,” said Milliken, 55, who described her brother as a loner.
She is not aware of any friends with whom Niehaus would have left, she said.
“He would have called work,” she said. “He wouldn't put his job in jeopardy.”
Penn Hills police could not be reached for comment.
Trib Total Media is offering $2,500 as a reward. Anyone with information should contact Penn Hills police Detective Joseph Blaze at 412-798-2012.
