Oakland Police Search Husband’s Home for Missing Wife

San Francisco (KCBS/AP) — Oakland police and a cadaver dog from the Alameda County sheriff’s office are searching the home of a software developer whose estranged wife hasn’t been seen for ten days.

Law-enforcement officials received a warrant to search the home of Hans Reiser in the city’s Montclair District.

Police issued a bulletin on Monday that said the woman is “at risk” and could be a victim of foul play. The children have been placed with Child Protective Services.

Hans Reiser has not been termed a suspect in her disappearance, and police have yet to speak to him.

Man’s home searched — wife is missing

A dog that can smell a cadaver searched a crawl space underneath the six-room home, located on a winding street off Skyline Boulevard in a steep wooded canyon, as well as the backyard and neighboring yards. Also on scene were agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The Reisers, who acquaintances said met through a Russian dating service, frequently traveled to Russia.

Looks like another terrible, contentious divorce that may have gone terribly wrong. The words back and forth and accusations during this divorce have been awful.

The Reisers married in 1999 and separated in May 2004. Nina Reiser filed for divorce three months later, citing irreconcilable differences and saying their children “hardly know their father” because he’d be out of the country on business for most of the year, records said.

Nina Reiser, who is trained as an obstetrician and gynecologist in Russia, was granted custody of the children. The couple’s divorce has not been finalized.

Nina Reiser accused her husband of subjecting their son, then 4, to violent video games and movies, causing him to have nightmares.

“This is an activity that Hans does almost obsessively to relax,” Nina Reiser wrote in her divorce filing. “Hans believes a child should ‘know the real world’ and sees nothing wrong with this behavior. He doesn’t seem to grasp that children are not little adults.”

Hans Reiser, in turn, denied that movies were to blame for their son’s nightmares and accused his wife of having an extramarital affair with Sean Sturgeon, a former friend of his, and that Sturgeon was a danger to the children. In an interview Wednesday, Sturgeon, 42, of Oakland denied having been a threat to the kids. Sturgeon said he became romantically involved with Nina Reiser only when her husband made it clear that the couple were through.

Nina Reiser’s boyfriend seems to be casting suspicion on Hans Reiser.

Nina Reiser’s boyfriend, Anthony Zografos, said he wasn’t surprised that police were investigating Hans Reiser. “(He) is really the only person I know who dislikes her. They really don’t get along.”

No clues in Oakland house search

Husband Hans Reiser, 43, was not at the house, where he grew up with his parents. His mother, Beverly Palmer, was home. Wiley said she was “very cooperative” and had left to stay with friends.

Wiley said police know where the husband is, but have not been able to contact him. He would not elaborate. Police broadcast radio alerts to officers to look out for two cars the husband has access to.

Reiser has hired an attorney, but has not been named as a suspect in his estranged wife’s disappearance.
