Janusz Milczarek went missing sometime in the 1980s, possibly from about 1987 to 1989, when he was in his twenties. He was last seen in Bayonne City, New Jersey or Brooklyn, New York. His case is very perplexing, as he is currently an unreported missing person and not in NamUs (the national governmental missing person database). Hopefully that will change once I publish his story and reach law enforcement. I have added him to my unreported missing person database in the meantime.
Born on August 1, 1958, Milczarek is originally from Poland. He moved to the United States in November 1979 live with his father in Bayonne City. When he ceased mailing letters and correspondences back to Poland in the mid-to-late 1980s, his family in Poland grew concerned. In one of Milczarek’s letters to his mother, he informed her that he met a girl and moved to Brooklyn, New York City, New York. His mother, who is now deceased, had searched for him for many years. However, because of the language barrier, she was unable to push for a missing person case.
Milczarek can be described as a Caucasian (Polish) male with a slim build and brown hair. He is about 5’6″ or 5’7″ in height, and he has a homemade tattoo of the initials “WP” on his left wrist.
One of Milczarek’s family members states that his other relative had sent DNA to CODIS to be compared against a specific John Doe. It is also stated that Milczarek and his father may have resided with a man whom had disappeared from their lives, prior to Milczarek’s disappearance. He also was said to have an interaction with a friend of the family in Brooklyn somewhere from 1983 to 1985. In 1987 to 1989, he shipped a package of food to his family in Poland with no return address. That was the very last time his family ever heard from him.
If alive today, Milczarek would be 64 years old.

Milczarek’s family members do believe that there is a chance he is still alive and that he may have drifted from the family, but they believe that he likely would have changed his name to an Americanized version of Janusz, such as “John”, “Jack”, “Jonathan”, etc. His father passed away in 1992, and his mother is still alive in Poland.
