New reward in case of missing Utah man

     The family of Utah resident Steven T. Koecher, who has been missing since Dec. 13, 2009, will announce a reward for information leading to his safe return or to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for his abduction or bodily harm.
     A news conference in cooperation with Henderson Mayor Andy A. Hafen and Henderson Police, will take place at 9 a.m., Friday, February 26, at the Henderson City Hall, 240 Water Street, Henderson, Nev. 89015.
     The reward will be coordinated through Crime Stoppers of Nevada, as well as police agencies in Southern Nevada and Southern Utah.
     In addition to the reward announcement, the press conference will cover several key topics, including:
  • Status of police investigations in St. George, Utah, and Henderson, Nev.
  • Status of Koecher’s missing passport and resulting police checks of airline boardings.
  • A report of what police and family investigations have uncovered about Koecher’s background.
  • Recent contacts between the St. George Police Department and the family of Susan Powell, a West Valley City, Utah, woman who went missing about the same time as Koecher.
  • An update on the campaign to put Steven’s photo on Las Vegas area milk cartons.
     Steven Koecher’s parents, brothers, and extended family members will arrive from the Salt Lake City to be present at the press conference and to respond to questions from Las Vegas area media. Frank Mahoney from the Nevada Center for Missing Loved ones will also be on hand.
