GRANT PARK, Ill. — The Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a retired teacher.

Daniel A. Jarski, 62, was last seen Sunday, Sept. 9 in rural Grant Park, Ill. When he hadn’t returned home by late afternoon, his family began to worry. It was not known where he was headed or with whom.

Jarski taught science at Andrew High School in Tinley Park for 23 years, and is married with three children.

The Jarski family organized a search party that began searching for Daniel along the Kankakee River Thursday morning.
