CASE DETAILS

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 (http://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.

Hug the ones you love for you never know when it might be the last time you see them.

  2. My grandpa is a retired veteran and he just bought a 2019 Tahoe and always tells us he will never tell us when he sick or depressed and it worries us so much

  3. John really does not want to be pulled out of that water!

    This looks like the biggest struggle ive watched on your channel yet!
    Havent watched them all yet though

  4. I know this older video but plz be careful around those big rocks snakes love them there rocks rattlers, moccasins and copperheads not being silly but very serious God Bless y'all Always

  5. I have learned a lot from watching yall. Everytime I get near a body of water now I roll my windows down now. Just because you never know anything can happen and seconds count. You guys are Angels 😇

  6. 22 veterans PER DAY?!! Seriously… that is absolutely heartbreaking. I am from the U.K, so I have little understanding of how your systems work… I’m guessing that there’s a lack of appropriate resources though? Our mental health services have really suffered in recent years, and we are a much smaller island. 😕

    The inspector guy handled this so much better than some others have done. True class on all sides – obviously yourselves included. Honestly… paying for membership on your channel is the best money I’ve spent in a long time. You guys are inspirational and amazing human beings. ❤️
    There’s this quote from Fred Rogers that really lifts me up when things seem bleak, and I think it is really appropriate here;

    “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”” ❤️

  7. Thank you for what you guys do it is so cool to how hard of workers you guys are you are real hero's this job is so difficult but you guys never give up so you guys are real hero's you never stop even if it is super hard never stop this and always remember the families are so grateful for taking the time to find their loved ones♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  8. I wish that through his depression he could have seen how loved he was and how much his family wanted him around. You never cause your family less pain by ending your life, never. If one person watches these videos and sees that, then you’ve made an even bigger impact than you already do!

  9. I like how AWP is getting the respect and cooperation they deserve when working with local police. The police use to be kind of dicks back then. Seems now they are respectful, cooperative.

  10. I've been binging all of your videos this week and I really appreciate how you all consistently use the victims names during your searches. It shows so much humanity and respect, not only for the victims, but also the families. I've been a Nurse Practitioner for almost 20 years, 15 of them in level 2 trauma centers including a pediatric trauma center and you guys are real heros. I wish I had a skill you all could utilize because I'd be right there next to you. ❤️ from Pensacola.

  11. You guys are class acts and I'd like to remind you that you're doing God's work out there. It's good to see the local law enforcement humbly differing to your expertise. There appeared to be nothing but good moral men out there. Thanks boys

  12. Amazing work! Here recently I’ve seen some Americans be so disrespectful to our military. Acting like a bunch of spoiled kids. It’s just really sad.

  13. I feel so sad for John and his family. What AWP does is phenomenal. Thank you so much. It’s the hardest thing to lose a loved one, but I can’t imagine not knowing what happened to them.

  14. Still Looking for the tools to save lives from you and Sweat Shirt s I wear a lot of them I would buy it from you I haven't found your page to buy things from you yet but I don't ever give up

  15. I am forever grateful for everything you have done and continue to do to bring find them and bring them all back home for closer to all the Families and Loved Ones your Heroes in my eyes
