Family baffled by Minnesota man’s disappearance

SHOREVIEW, Minn. – Ramsey County authorities are trying to find a Shoreview man who told his wife he’d been kidnapped.

A crime alert from the Department of Public Safety says 29-year-old Matthew William Anderson was last seen Friday afternoon at his job in Roseville. He phoned his wife Friday evening and said two men had kidnapped him, and that he thought he was in Iowa.

His wife, Amber Anderson, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press he spoke only for 32 seconds and sounded very scared. He also texted her and said he loved her.

Undersheriff George Altendorfer says the call was placed from the Wisconsin Dells area.

His sister, Emily Samarzia, of Duluth, told the Duluth News Tribune Anderson has no enemies, and they have no idea why he would go missing.

He drives a maroon 2001 Pontiac Montana van with Minnesota license plate number 922 DUZ.
