'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Penn Hills police have no clues to the whereabouts of a Trib Total Media employee who was last seen around Memorial Day, Police Chief Howard Burton said.

The family of Dan Niehaus, 59, of Penn Hills filed a missing person's report with Penn Hills police. Police and family searched his home on Lime Hollow Road, finding his truck and keys to it but no sign of Niehaus, he said Saturday.

“It's very strange. We have no idea where he is,” Burton said.

Trib Total Media is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the whereabouts of Niehaus, who has worked as an inserter at the company's West Deer facility since 2005. A family member last spoke to him about three weeks ago.

Anyone with information should contract Penn Hills Detective Joseph Blaze at 412-798-2012.
