$250k reward for missing man info

A $250,000 reward has been offered in the hope the case of missing Mackay man Peter James Johnson can be solved.

Mr Johnson was last seen on April 17, 2003 and it's believed he may have met with foul play.

Queensland Police had previously offered a $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for his disappearance.

State Crime Operations Command's Homicide Group Detective Superintendent Brian Wilkins said extensive searches seven years ago had returned no results.

"The last reported sighting of Mr Johnson was in his personal vehicle, a green 1998 Ford utility, on the Suttor Developmental Road near Lake Elphinstone, Nebo, at 10.40am," Det Supt Wilkins said.

"The vehicle was later seen unattended in a roadside rest area approximately two kilometres east of Boundary Creek on the Peak Downs Highway."

"We consider that Mr Johnson may have met with foul play but all inquiries to date have failed to locate Mr Johnson or determine the exact circumstances behind his disappearance," he said.

"Investigations are continuing, however, we need further information to progress the matter.

"It is my hope that offering this reward will prompt someone in the community who has information about Mr Johnson's disappearance to come forward.

"Anyone with information about the incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000."
