  • Details of Disappearance
    Bierman called in sick to work during the morning of February 22, 1999 in Felton, California.
    He was last being seen in Felton, where he owned a house and worked for a utility company.

    His truck was discovered abandoned on San Lorenzo Way in Felton near the San Lorenzo River shortly afterwards. Bierman's keys were in the ignition. It was parked near a land slide, where Bierman did emergency pipe repairs several days before he vanished. He'd put Post-Its all over the dash to remind him of daily tasks.

    An extensive search of the surrounding area and the river produced no evidence as to Bierman's whereabouts.
