– Queensland Police have announced a $250,000 reward over the disappearance and suspected murder of a Brisbane man.

Wooloowin man Gerhard Bruno Wagner, 61, went missing in 1999 and police now believe he was murdered.

Detective Superintendent Steve Holahan said the Police Minister had approved the reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible.

He said Wagner was building his dream yacht and was last seen on January 7, 1999, departing his friend’s boat workshop at Hemmant on his motorcycle.

“Police inquiries conducted since the time Gerhard was reported missing through to now have resulted in a strong belief that Gerhard has been murdered,” he said.

Wagner’s younger brother Paul broke down as he spoke to the media, pleading for public assistance.

“We need to do this so we can give him a decent burial and start to heal from this terrible tragedy,” he said.

“Gerhard was a much-loved member of the family and we miss him. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of him.

“Somebody must know something, even if it’s something small, they can be pieced together and we might be lucky and find out what happened to him.”

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers.
