Investigation into disappearance of Daniel Jarski continues

September 25, 2018

The search continues into the disappearance of Dan Jarski, of Grant Park.

Kankakee County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Ken McCabe said investigators continue to track leads.

“We will follow every lead, but we will not put all that [information] out there,” McCabe said.

The 62-year-old Jarski went missing Sept. 9. He is 6-feet tall, 300 pounds, with blue eyes, gray hair and fair skin.

On Sept. 11, family members found Jarski’s van parked in a hunting area of Kankakee River State Park west of Warner Bridge Road on the south side of the river.

According to a Sept. 20 post on a Facebook page (Find Dan Jarski) set up by his wife, Janace, investigators said the van was unlocked and no suspicious fingerprints were found.

Investigators returned his phone, and she said he had been active on Facebook.

Jarski left his home without his wallet or phone, which was not uncommon.

Kankakee and Will County agencies, search and cadaver dogs, many volunteers and Missing Persons Awareness Network NFP have searched for the retired high school science teacher. He taught at Victor J. Andrew High School in Tinley Park. Hunters also are in the area daily.

The areas east and west of Warner Bridge Road have been searched.
