He was spotted on CCTV just before 3am that morning, walking around with a heavy backpack on his back.

The backpack is said to contain several labor knives including one with his name engraved on it.

Local police conducted a major search of the city’s harbor however it ended after three days last Friday without any evidence being recovered.

Investigators have now suspended the sea search with no plans to continue unless new information becomes available.

However, fire brigade divers training at the harbor have been asked to continue searching for his remains while they are in the water.

A spokesman for East Jutland police told the Irish Sun: “Last week we conducted a three-day search in the port of Aarhus – unfortunately to no avail.

“We do not currently plan to continue this extended search for the foreseeable future, unless we receive new, specific information about where he may be.

“However, the local fire brigade has divers who usually train in the harbor and we have asked them to continue looking for Peter while they are in the water.”

The young man is believed to have left a local pub between midnight and 1am the night he disappeared.

As well as CCTV footage showing him walking towards the harbor area, a witness also reported seeing him sitting on a bench next to a lifebuoy around 3am.

He lived in the country for a number of months and was with his twin sister before he disappeared.

Police shared photos of his distinctive chef’s knives as well as the backpack and clothes he had at the time.

It is believed that he brought a heavy sharpening stone to sharpen his knives.
