William failed to show up to a staff Christmas party

William Ostertag was an employee of a fast food restaurant on Maplewood Avenue in North Bay at the time of his disappearance.

He had not shown up for his shift on December 17th, 1990, and when he also failed to attend a work Christmas party on December 21st, 1990, his employer contacted police to report him missing. His boss was concerned because this was highly unusual behaviour for William.

William spent most of his life living in Quebec and had only been in North Bay for a short period prior to his disappearance.

Police interviews with persons who knew him reveal that he had mentioned he was going to be out of town from the 18 th to the 20th of December 1990, but where he was planning to go is not known. William's family members were interviewed in hopes that he had gone to visit them, however, he had not done so.

William routinely wore white cook's pants and had a partial beard. He was also known to hitchhike on a regular basis.

Despite several attempts to locate him, William Ostertag remains missing.

up to a staff Christmas party</h2> <p>William Ostertag was an employee of a fast food restaurant on Maplewood Avenue in North Bay at the time of his disappearance. </p> <p>He had not shown up for his shift on December 17<sup>th</sup>, 1990, and when he also failed to attend a work Christmas party on December 21<sup>st</sup>, 1990, his employer contacted police to report him missing. His boss was concerned because this was highly unusual behaviour for William.<br> </p> <p> William spent most of his life living in Quebec and had only been in North Bay for a short period prior to his disappearance. </p> <p>Police interviews with persons who knew him reveal that he had mentioned he was going to be out of town from the 18 <sup>th</sup> to the 20<sup>th</sup> of December 1990, but where he was planning to go is not known. William's family members were interviewed in hopes that he had gone to visit them, however, he had not done so. </p> <p>William routinely wore white cook's pants and had a partial beard. He was also known to hitchhike on a regular basis. </p> <p> Despite several attempts to locate him, William Ostertag remains missing. </p> <p><img src="/assets/img/unsolved-missing-person-investigations/ostertag.jpg" alt=""><br> </p> </div> </section> <section> <div> <h2>Submit a tip</h2> <p>Anyone with information that may help us with this investigation is asked to call the North Bay Police Service at 705-497-5555, or visit us in person at 135 Princess Street West, North Bay. </p> <p>For those who wish to remain anonymous, contact Near North Crime Stoppers by telephone toll-free at 1-800-222-8477, or submit a tip online at <a href="http://www.nearnorthcrimestoppers.com/contact-us/submit-a-tip">nearnorthcrimestoppers.com</a>. </p> </div> </section> </main> <footer> <div id="footer-logo"> <img src="/assets/img/NBPS-logo.png" alt="North Bay Police Logo" /> </div> <section> <h3>Quick Links</h3> <ul> <li> <a href="/about">About Us</a> </li> <li> <a href="/services-board">NBPS Board</a> </li> <li> <a href="/contact-us/freedom-of-information-requests">Freedom of Information Requests</a> </li> <li> <a href="/file-a-complaint/thank-a-police-officer">Thank a Member of the NBPS</a> </li> <li> <a href="/file-a-complaint">Compliments/Complaints</a> </li> <li> <a href="/services/hire-a-police-officer">Hire a Police Officer</a> </li> <li> <a href="/services">Services</a> </li> <li> <a href="/news-releases/unsolved-missing-person-investigations">Unsolved Missing Person Investigations</a> </li> </ul> </section> <section> <h3>North Bay Police Service</h3> <p class="h-card"><span class="p-street-address">135 Princess St West</span> <span class="p-locality">North Bay</span>, <span><abbr class="p-region" title="Ontario">ON</abbr></span> <span class="p-postal-code">P1B 6C2</span></p> <p><strong><span>Send Mailing Correspondence to:</span></strong><br> <span>PO Box 717, North Bay, ON P1B 8J8</span></p> <h3>The police station public hours:</h3> <p>Monday - Friday: 9 am – 4 pm</p> <p>Saturday - Sunday: Closed</p> <h3>Stay Connected</h3> <div class="social"> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/NorthBayPolice" target="_blank"><img src="/assets/icon-facebook.svg" height="26" alt=""></a> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/northbaypolice/" target="_blank"><img src="/assets/icon-instagram.svg" height="26" alt=""></a> <a href="https://twitter.com/NorthBayPolice" target="_blank"><img src="/assets/icon-twitter.svg" height="26" alt=""></a> </div> <div id="crime-stopper"> <a href="https://www.nearnorthcrimestoppers.com"> <img src="/assets/img/crimestoppers-logo-1483588185.png" alt="Crime Stoppers Logo" /> </a> <div> <h3>Submit an anonymous tip</h3> <p>800-222-8477<br> <a href="https://www.nearnorthcrimestoppers.com">nearnorthcrimestoppers.com</a></p> </div> </div> <div id="ccfcc"> <a href="https://www.protectchildren.ca/app/en/"> <img src="/assets/img/ccfcc-logo.jpg" alt="" /> </a> </div> </section> <section> <h3>Emergency:</h3> <p>Call 9-1-1</p> <h3>Non-emergency calls</h3> <p>requiring a police response<br> <a href="tel:+705-472-1234">705-472-1234</a></p> <h3>General inquiries</h3> <p><a href="tel:+705-497-5555">705-497-5555</a></p> </section> <div> <p>&copy; 2017 - 2024 North Bay Police Service.
