The family of Daniel Kulling is offering a cash reward of $1,100 to anyone with credible information leading to the location of the Oil City man or leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for his disappearance.

Kulling, 34, was reported missing since Dec. 26. He was last seen by his mother at around 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 23 at their home on Martin Street in Siverly.

Kulling’s mother, Pamela Voight, said her son left behind his coat, cigarettes, cellphone and all his belongings.

Police and family members said Kulling’s cellphone revealed threatening text messages between him and another person.

“He was in some kind of altercation,” Kulling’s father, Dan Kulling, told the newspaper on Friday.

Also Friday, Oil City Police Chief Bob Wenner confirmed an altercation occurred on Dec. 23 when Kulling visited Dee Ann Weckerly, 34, of Oil City. Weckerly, Kulling’s former girlfriend, is wanted on an outstanding felony arrest warrant for criminal use of a communication facility to facilitate the sale of methamphetamine.

“Dee Ann Weckerly also had a new boyfriend,” Wenner said. “There was a verbal altercation, but we do know he (Kulling) got away from there.”

Kulling is described as being about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 140 pounds and having short blond hair and blue eyes.

Wenner said there’s a possibility Kulling fled the area, as there is evidence he engaged in activities in violation of his parole.

Kulling had recently served time in jail on a charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court documents.

Wenner previously said several arrests have been made over the course of the investigation into Kulling’s disappearance, although Kulling’s status and whereabouts remain unknown.

Anyone with information about Kulling is asked to contact the Oil City Police Department at 678-3080.
