Reward Offered for Missing Hoboken Man
Friends are organizing a search for Andrew Jarzyk, the Hoboken man who has been missing for nearly a week, as a $10,000 reward is posted for information about Jarzyk.
The search will focus on Pier A Park in Hoboken where video footage last captured the 27-year-old man jogging along the Hudson at 2 a.m. after a night out with friends according to PIX 11.
"It's a mystery," Hoboken Detective Sgt.Anthony Falco told the station of Jarzyk's disappearance.
The city of Hoboken is coming under criticism for not repairing a network of cameras along the river that could have provided further images of Jarcyk's jog. Juan Melli, a spokesman for Mayor Dawn Zimmer, tells NBC 4 New York that when a contract with the company that installed the cameras in 2004 expired another company was brought into look at the cameras and determined they weren't usable.
Relatives are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Jarzyk,a banker who was recently promoted by PNC Bank. “We’re at a dead end,” said Stephen Jarzyk, 32, Andrew’s brother tells The Record. “We either need to find him alive, or my family needs closure. He needs to come home either way, soon.”
“On a personal note, I’m begging you to mend my parents’ broken hearts,” Stephen Jarzyk told CBS New York.
NYPD and New Jersey State Police have spent much of the week searching the Hudson River with divers and from the air according to The Record. Transit Police have also assisted with the search.
Jarzyk was last seen wearing a neon green T-shirt over a black spandex long sleeve shirt, black snow gloves. He had ear buds and was wearing a black "Under Armour" cap. He is think, stands 6-foot, 2 inches tall with blue eyes and blonde hair.
Anyone with information about Jarzyk should contact Hoboken Police at 201-420-2100.
