OCEAN CITY – March 11 marks five years since the disappearance of John Weisbecker from his home in the 200 block of Asbury Avenue.

Ocean City police, along with the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office, the FBI and the New Jersey State Police, said they are still searching for clues as to why the 21-year-old went missing. A reward of $50,000 has been offered to anyone providing information about his whereabouts.

Weisbecker, who would be 26 this year, was reported missing at around 8 p.m. March 11, 2009 by family members when they returned home for the day. He was last reported seen at around 10:30 a.m. by a postal worker.

The investigation indicates that Weisbecker disappeared shortly before noon. Evidence at his home shows signs of a struggle, and authorities suspect that Weisbecker did not leave of his own free will.

Weisbecker is white, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, and has blue eyes, brown hair, and numerous tattoos on his torso and arms. At the time of his disappearance he had a brown mustache.
