    IA - Ethan Kazmerzak, 22, Hampton, 15 Sept 2013

    Ethan Kazmerzak


    This is the first time I've heard of this missing person's case

    Here's the find Ethan Kazmerzak website.

    Reward renewed for information about missing Hampton man -

    Today marks six months since the disappearance of a Hampton man, and to this day there have been few leads and no results.

    22-year old Ethan Kazmerzak went missing sometime in the early hours of September 15th, 2013. A reward was offered for any information about his in October but was then taken off the table in early December. Now, police are hoping renewing the reward offer will help turn up some information about what may have happened to Ethan. On September 15th of last year the community of Hampton began the search for one of their own, and now 6 months later the question still remains, where is Ethan Kazmerzak?

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Whoa, this happened six months ago and no clues since of his whereabouts. Doesn't look good. Always difficult when so much time passes after the disappearance. Looks like he and his car disappeared while out bar-hopping. Glad to see community searches are ongoing.

    Makes me wonder if he had a car accident and is in a body of water or very well hidden somewhere in nature.

    I'm within an hours drive of Hampton. They searched local areas of water & came up with nothing. At 1st I thought maybe he drove into a field somewhere, but obviously not because he wasn't found when the harvest was last Fall.

    ...Ethan Kazmerzak, 22, was last seen at a party near the intersection of 190th Street and Nettle Avenue in rural Franklin County.

    ETA:

    ..."On Monday, the Iowa State Patrol searched one area of Franklin County from the air for signs of Ethan's 2006 Volkswagen Jetta, and on Wednesday, Cerro Gordo CERT performed an aerial search of an expanded area into portions of Butler County," Dietz added.

    ...He could be driving a silver 2006 Volkswagen Jetta with Iowa license plates AUZ 382.

    There is more than just A POND, there are few more water holes a smidge to the east of that ONE at the above reported address of the pond searched. As well, there are a couple of creeks meandering through...Buffalo Creek & Otter Creek <- appears to be the larger of the two.

    In the Hampton Chronicle FB comments here, one post asks if searchers ever checked the 2 pits off Olive & 190th since there is a driving path right into it and they are so close to last phone ping:

    https://www.facebook.com/hamptonchro...2?stream_ref=5

    The HC answers no, LE only checked the pit behind the home (as shown on tarabull's map above). Can any locals advise if LE did decide to check those since that 2013 answer was posted? I can't find anything besides LE asking property owners to check their own properties to see if anything suspicious.

    MOO I think this can be solved.

    This is from the FindEthan website linked in the opening post of this thread:

    Kazmerzak was seen in several area pubs on Sept. 14, including Pit Row and the Red Moose in Hampton as well as Duck’s in Aredale. He was reportedly last seen at a party at a gravel pit pond located behind a house in the 1400 block of 190th Street. Police say his cell phone was last used at about 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 15 at the intersection of 190th Street and Olive Avenue and his ATM card has reportedly not been used since Sept. 14.

    Parents plead for help to find missing man
    2 hours ago

    ..."I just want Ethan to come home. I want somebody that knows something to help because their family can't take it anymore, this is too hard," family friend Pam Devries told KCCI in 2013. "I just hope that someone listens to their conscience and comes forward because somebody knows something."

    Parents plead for information on missing son
    1 hour ago

    ...When asked if Ethan's credit cards and cellphone had remained inactive the past year, Schaefer said he couldn't comment on that.

    Schaefer stressed that anyone with any information, even if they think it's insignificant, should contact police, and reminded the public that Ethan's car still has not been found.

    “That vehicle is a big part,” he said, because it could help police find Ethan.
