HOBOKEN – The Hoboken Police Dept. is searching for Andrew Jarzyk, a 27-year-old Hoboken man who was last seen struggling near his Monroe Street apartment early Sunday morning, said a friend of Jarzyk on Monday morning. Jarzyk is described as 6 feet 2 inches tall and 175 pounds with a tall, slender build. He is Caucasian with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Jarzyk was at the West Five Supper Club on Madison Street on Saturday night, where he was with friends, according to the friend. He said that upon leaving the club, Jarzyk apparently went home and changed into exercise clothes, presumably to go for a run as part of his training for an upcoming marathon.

When Jarzyk left his apartment, however, he may have gotten locked out and attempted to reach his apartment via the fire escape. A neighbor saw Jarzyk at this point, apparently the last known contact with Andrew before he disappeared. He was in the area between Fifth and Monroe Streets and Fourth and Jefferson Streets.

Hoboken Police Lieutenant Kenneth Ferrante told Fios1 news on Monday that the department is searching the area around Jarzyk’s disappearance for any clues that might lead to information about his whereabouts. Jarzyk’s sister-in-law, Karyn, told Fios1 that he was very responsible and not the type of person to leave home without telling anyone, especially since his younger sister was staying with him at the time of his disappearance.

According to his Facebook profile, Jarzyk works for PNC Financial Services and is originally from Trenton.

Anyone with information on Jarzyk’s disappearance is being asked to contact the Hoboken Police Department detective bureau at (201) 420-2110.

First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to this young man's family. He is known by many in his former neighborhood and apparently loved by many. Whomever indicated that he was out drinking and then did not sleep, according to this article, may be on to something. If he truly had been out all night, and even mildly intoxicated, the internal body chemistry changes and the dehydrating effects of the alcohol would make everything, his heart, lungs, muscles work harder. Not sure if he had any medical conditions, asthma, heart murmur..? Some of these things don't go noticed until an athlete, who has pushed themselves too far, has passed out. It happens unfortunately in the young, male athlete. That is the most logical point of view from a medical perspective. I pray that they find him and my thoughts and prayers remain with this young man and his family, friends and for those who have to investigate.

First of all for anyone who actually knows Andrew knows what an amazing person he is, and how much he is truly cared for. It doesn't matter how "ridiculous" you think something is, or how much a part of the story "doesn't make sense" to you. The point is, this all happened and it is extremely real. There are friends and family members that are devastated by his disappearance, and I agree I wouldn't wish this on the most awful person in the world. I just wish that some people had a little bit more common sense before they start typing away behind a computer screen and they have no damn clue what they're talking about. Do not be ignorant. If you don't have any positive comments or helpful information then don't bother posting anything. All of us that are friends with Andrew are praying for his safe return home, and for his family's strength during this difficult time. No one needs people making stupid remarks or arguing about other people's theories. Any help at this point is clearly welcome, but don't make the situation worse with ignorance.

I'm going to give the police the benefit of the doubt. If something happened in or around his apartment, they would have been able to figure that out. Anyone who's been to Hoboken knows how crazy the traffic can be, especially on a Saturday night when most people are drinking. I fear that something more than likely happened while he was running and the person involved did not want to report it for obvious reasons. To me, that would make the most sense. Hope I am wrong though, and he's ok.

This story makes no sense, nobody goes for a jog right after leaving the bar.

Some comments from another 27-year old marathon-training runner who frequents West Five Supper Club:

1. West Five gets attracts a very drunk crowd on Saturday nights. It's likely (though not certain) his decision making was highly compromised at the time he disappeared.

2. If he made it out for the run, he may have had a GPS watch or his phone tracking his whereabouts and progress. Someone close to him would know if he uses one of these during his runs.

3. If he does use GPS, you may be able to access his history and historical running routes - narrowing down where he would have been running.

4. If he's indeed training for a marathon, he could have had the intention to do up to 20 miles (most do their weekly "long run" on Sunday mornings), been severely dehydrated, and passed out somewhere along the way.

5. I've been out running in Hoboken at all hours of the night and never had an issue, but if he wandered west of West Five to western Hoboken then it's a rougher crowd and he could've gotten into some trouble.

Just some thoughts - hoping he turns up soon and is okay.

He could be unconscious and therefore can't call for help. Otherwise don't you think he would be home by now? To rule anything out at this point is dumb. You have to check every scenario. This is an actual person we are talking about not a law and order episode.

Isn't it sad how people who know nothing about Andrew are quick to jump to conclusions and post irresponsible comments? If you have nothing positive to say please don't write. Your comments are hurtful.

The 1st comment from uptown girl makes no sense. If he was stuck he would have called out for help. He's 4 stories up not on top of Caesars. What a moron.

It doesn't matter how many stories up he could be, you're negating the fact that he had been out drinking and could be severly dehydrated. Even if he woke up, after being on a roof a full day in the sun, he would remain dehydrated and unable to call for help. I applaud her for her comment as she was thinking outside the box. Many people may not have thought to check there. And as always, in a missing person case, no idea/thought/comment/fact is stupid. Any little thing could help spark another idea or a memory. Thank you uptowngirl for caring about our friend!

Remember the Hangover movie? Drunk guy goes missing and they find him on the roof. They did say he climbed the fire escape. Maybe he couldn't get down and his phone died.
