HENDERSON, Nev. -- A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information that could lead to clues to the whereabouts of a St. George, Utah man last seen in Henderson in mid-December.

Steven Kosher's car was found abandoned in a Sun City Anthem Cul-de-sac on December 13, 2009. He was last seen on surveillance video walking away from his car.

Where is Steven Koecher?

Koecher's family held a press conference Friday on the steps of Henderson's City Hall to announce the reward and offer updates on the investigation.

"We ask for a week of vigilance here in Las Vegas. If people keep their eyes out, they might find him or see someone who looks like him. We appreciate all clues," said Steven's father Rolf Koecher.

The family says Henderson Police have gone to great lengths to find Koecher, even following a tip from an alleged psychic.

Detectives don't believe Koecher got on a plane or a bus and there was nothing unusual found on his laptop. His passport was originally thought to be missing, but was recently found in his belongings, so police don't believe he left the country.

Koecher's cell phone was last used in the Las Vegas area early on the morning of December 14, 2009 to call his voicemail box. No calls have been made since and there has been no activity on his bank accounts.

Police also looked into Koecher's library records in St. George, but were unable to find anything relevant.

"If there's a dark side, we haven't found it yet. But we're still open to that. But this is a mystery for us," said Rolf Koecher. "We can't find anything for why he would disappear or why he would be in this area."

Earlier this month, Anderson Dairy began putting Koecher's picture on their milk cartons. The dairy says they will continue with that campaign.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Steven Koecher, call the Henderson Police Department at (702) 267-5000 or CrimeStoppers at (702) 385-5555.
