Authorities search for South Holland man missing nearly a month


SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. – A $5,000 cash reward is being offered for information leading to the location of a South Holland man missing since last month.

According to family members, Jeffrey Washington has been missing since Feb. 9. The family says his disappearance is not consistent with his normal behavior. The family adds that Washington had no reason to hurt himself.

Washington’s loved ones have since contacted the South Holland Police Department for answers.

Family and friends held a small search for Washington Wednesday afternoon. Community activist Andrew Holmes also searched the creek banks on nearby Dolton, where Washington’s dogs were found not long after he disappeared.

His mom, Angela Washington, tells WGN that when she last communicated with her son, he told her he was scared.

The South Holland Police Chief Shawn Staples says investigators are treating the disappearance with high priority. Foul play is not suspected, however. Authorities say there has been nothing out of the ordinary with Washington’s financials.

Neighboring police departments as well as the state police are assisting with the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the South Holland Police Department.
