EAGAN, Minn. - A Twin Cities family hopes new age-enhanced photos will help solve the mystery of what happened to their son, who disappeared from their lives 26 years ago.
Christopher Kerze was just 17-years-old when he left his family's Eagan home in 1990. His car was found abandoned near Grand Rapids, but the teen was never located.
After seeing the Jacob Wetterling case come to resolution this fall the Kerze family decided to contact Eagan Police in hopes they could jump start the cold case. A new age-progression poster was laid out with help from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children for release in the Grand Rapids area. Besides the photos, the poster also describes two unique items believed to be with Christopher at the time he went missing. One is a Mossberg 20 gauge bolt action shotgun with a three shell clip. The other is a zebra print watch.
Investigators believe the teen was wearing a light blue trench coat, a black shirt, blue jeans and brown leather shoes when he disappeared.
Kerze's family and Eagan Police will discuss this case later Monday afternoon.
If you know anything about Christopher Kerze's whereabouts or what may have happened to him 26 years ago, call Eagan Police at 651-675-5700.
