    IL - Christopher Stasiak, 44, St Clair County, 11 Jan 2016

    Christopher Stasiak


    Family of missing hunter fears foul play
    • Brother says Chris Stasiak had no reason to disappear

    • Police find no evidence of missing hunter in woods

    • Stasiak left cash, food card behind


    Cahokia, Illinois -
    A family member of a missing Dupo hunter said he is increasingly concerned that his brother is a victim of foul play.

    Christopher Stasiak was last seen alive Jan. 11 when he reportedly went into some woods along Illinois 3 near Cahokia to go hunting. Despite a massive search by police that included planes, boats and dozens of officers on foot, no sign of him has turned up.

    “If something happened to him in those woods, there would have to be something left behind,” said Michael Stasiak, the brother of the missing hunter. “We didn’t find an arrow, any of his clothes...nothing.”

    Police searched a canal along the woods several times with concerns the hunter somehow fell in and drowned. Choked with flood waters at the time he went missing, the canal is now almost entirely drained.

    “I never thought he was in that water,” Stasiak said. “He had graphite arrows with him. If they were in the water, they’d float and we would have found them.”

    St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Scott Weymouth said Tuesday that family members interviewed by investigators said Chris Stasiak had a history of disappearing from time to time. Searchers were hopeful, Weymouth said, that the missing hunter would suddenly give family a call to say he’s OK.

    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."

    Chris Stasiak’s girlfriend told police he had not been heard from since he was dropped off in the 300 block of McBride Avenue in Dupo around 1 p.m. Family members said they expected to hear from him at about 4 or 5 p.m. but a call never came.

    After being dropped off, Stasiak was last seen walking on the railroad tracks just under State Route 3.

    Stasiak, described as being 5-foot-9 and 272 pounds, was last seen wearing all camouflage clothing, rubber boots, and a hat with a light. He was carrying a backpack, tree stand, and his bow with several arrows.
    He knows the area and visits it regularly. http://www.kmov.com/story/30941724/h...ing-in-cahokia

    Missing hunter had warrant for his arrest when he disappeared. According to St. Clair County court records, Christopher Stasiak had his license suspended and a warrant issued for his arrest with a $10,000, cash only bond. Stasiak pleaded guilty in January 2014 in exchange for two years of court supervision and promises to seek alcohol treatment and pay a fine and court fees.

    No leads and they don't think the warrant is the cause for the disappearance. They would have just rescheduled his court date.

    It may take time... says they might have to do a DNA identification.
