Dan Niehaus, 59, of Penn Hills, a Trib Total Media employee, hasn't been seen since 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.

Jason Cato is a staff writer for Trib Total Media. He can be reached at 412-320-7936 or jcato@tribweb.com.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
