September 21, 2021, AWP began our search for 72-year-old Veteran John Zarkowski who was last seen on Friday, September 3, 2021, at 4:30 a.m. departing his residence - possibly without his shoes, phone, or wallet.
AWP was in Omaha at 11:45 p.m. getting ready to work a missing person case the next morning when they received a call from Jacob Grubbs from Chaos Divers ( bit.ly/SubChaosDivers ) after a friend of John's family reached out asking for help from anyone to come in search of John who was believed to have driven his White 2018 Tahoe LTZ into the Missouri River.
We connected the next morning with the lead investigators, Tony Hemmer and Sgt. Doug Durkan from the CASS County Sheriff's Department along with members of John's family.
Around 5:30 p.m. we identified a target in the Missouri River outside of Plattsmouth, Nebraska, and around 7:45 p.m. we confirmed it was John's Chevy Tahoe, 22' underwater.
Returning the next day (September 22, 2021), we struggled as this was one of our most difficult recoveries to date because of the heavy current of the Missouri River.
Early afternoon the Tahoe came out of the Missouri River at 12:59 p.m.
It was confirmed, John Zarkowski was inside the SUV.
A big thank you to the CASS County Sheriff's Office, Plattsmouth Fire Department, dive teams from the Omaha Fire Department along with Yutan Fire and Rescue, the City of Plattsmouth for providing a front loader and operator to clear a path to the work zone, and Neff Towing for volunteering their services.
We are humbled by the opportunity all of you have given us to help in the search for answers as to what happened to John.
