Missing man told wife he was kidnapped, withdrew $1K from bank


(CNN) - A missing Minnesota man who told his wife that he was kidnapped withdrew money from a bank on the day he disappeared, police said.

Matthew Anderson, 29, of Shoreview, Minnesota, was last seen leaving his place of employment at about 1:30 p.m. on Friday, September 17 to pick up his 1-year-old daughter from a daycare center, said the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

According to authorities, Anderson called his wife later that evening to say that he was kidnapped by two men.

Investigators have determined that Anderson withdrew $1,000 in cash from a bank at 1 p.m. on Friday. They said he was alone at the time.

The 2001 Pontiac Montana van Anderson was driving on the day he vanished was located Sunday morning in downtown Chicago, police said.

Police continue to follow up on leads in the search for Anderson.

“Our investigators are going off the information that they are given and are working the case from that,” said sheriff’s spokesperson Holli Drinkwine.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Matthew Anderson is asked to call the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office at 651-266-7322.
