On the Facebook page “Find Dan Jarski,” it was posted that the family got confirmation from the coroner that “the body that was found the day of the search was Dan.”  The posted the following message.

“As a family, we are empty. This has been such a long road for us, and for all of you that have followed it with us. So many of you searched tirelessly, shared this page, hung flyers, prayed with us Dan would come home. We can’t say thank you enough. All we can say is that we are all blessed to have people like all of you in our lives.”

We all know this was not the news we were hoping for, and we want to thank everyone for their support and help – but the family needs time to process this. We will update this page as needed.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
