Coast guards join search for Pierre


Ben Kendall 2012-03-14

The coast guards have now joined the search for 25-year-old Pierre Nilsson who went missing over one week ago.

On Tuesday police divers checked the waters of Säveån without success.

"We will continue the search on Wednesday. We are using sonar equipment, which reacts to objects that are different from the norm on the bottom surface," says John Christoffersson from the coast guards in Gothenburg, to Göteborgs-Posten.

Pierre Nilsson attended a party with friends at a restaurant in Gamlestan on the night of March 3. He left the restaurant sometime between 1:00 and 2:00 am on March 4. According to the police, he was last seen walking parallel to the E 45 in the northern direction, towards Slakthusgatan.

So far there have been no traces of Pierre, excluding a pair gloves found in Gamlestan. His wife told the newspaper GT that she believed that they belonged to Pierre.

The family has announced a 1 million kronor reward to the person who can give a tip that leads to Pierre being found alive.
