BEACON, N.Y. (AP) _ Pete Seeger, known for his song ``Where Have All the Flowers Gone,'' is wondering where the banjo he played when he recorded it has gone.

Seeger, 81, has offered a $1,000 reward for the missing 55-year-old banjo. The folk singer traveled to Ulster County with it last week and is not sure how or when it disappeared from his car.

``I can't imagine why someone would steal it,'' said Seeger, a New York State resident.

Seeger said the banjo, which he made out of lignum vitae wood from Central America, is worth about $1,000.
