The remains of a South Jersey man who had been missing for four months were found on Tuesday, Oct. 4 in a remote part of Wharton State Forest.

In a press statement, police said the family of Peter Meyers, 68, of Cherry Hill, had reported him missing on June 7, 2022. Even before they knew Meyers was missing, police had found his vehicle on a dirt road in Wharton State Forest.

Search teams from the NJ State Police and Camden County conducted an extensive search for Meyers at the time in a large area of dense woodlands in the forest but found no signs of him.

The missing person case had remained open with no new information until last week when a man hunting in the Waterford, Camden County section of Wharton State Forest found human skeletal remains and contacted police. The remains were later identified as those of Meyers.

Police have yet to determine a cause of death and their investigation into his death is ongoing.

If you have any information about the death of Peter Meyers or his disappearance, you are asked to contact the New Jersey State Park Police at 877-927-6337.
