UPI News Service, 05/05/2013 

A Swedish man has finally been declared dead after being last heard from in 1911, officials said.

The family of a man named Johan Johansson requested that the National Tax Agency have him pronounced dead about 102 years after his likely death, The Local.se reported Sunday.

As part of the request, Per Johansson, the grandchild of Johan Johansson's late sister, brought the agency copies of several letters, including one Johan Johansson's brother had written in 1910, stating that the two men were together at a lumber camp in Vancouver.

Another letter, dated 1911, included a greeting from Johan Johansson.

However, in 1929, the brother wrote a letter home saying he had not heard from Johan Johansson.

Per Johansson also turned in church registers as proof of his relative's identity and likely death 102 years ago.

Although the circumstances around Johan Johansson are still unknown, the authorities officially declared him dead in April.
