    A day after police released surveillance video of a missing 27-year-old Hoboken man's last appearance in public, his family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts as they continue to plead for help in locating him nearly a week after he was last seen. 

    "We have been out here day after day after day, holding on by a thread," a tearful Karen Jarzyk, the sister-in-law of the missing man, said at a news conference Thursday.

    Relatives say Andrew Jarzyk, who worked at a local bank, was with friends at the West Five Supper Club on Madison Street Saturday night. Around 1 a.m. Sunday, he apparently told them he would be right back and never returned. 

    "He didn't just go out and get drunk and disappear," said Karyn Jarzyk. "He's not that type of person."

    Detective Anthony Falco showed NBC 4 New York surveillance video obtained from a restaurant showing Jarzyk running in exercise clothes near the river at about 2 a.m. Another camera captures him jogging into a park nearly a minute later -- and then he vanishes.

    Police don't believe any foul play was involved.

    "There's no evidence laying there, no type of clothing articles, blood so to speak, no weapons or anybody else seen in that area that could have done something," said Falco. 

    "At this point, it's a mystery," he said. 

    Searches in the square-mile city by family, investigators and dive teams in the Hudson River have turned up empty. Andrew Jarzyk's family is begging for any information.

    "The smallest thing could help the investigators, point us in the right direction," said his brother Stephen Jarzyk. 

    Jarzyk is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, 160 pounds with blond hair, blue eyes and a cross tattoo on his chest.
