I had the privilege of meeting this gentleman only once here a few weeks ago but he left a great impression to both me and my husband.  Unfortunately, he is now missing in the Provo, Utah area in the United States.  If you have any information about Kuba, please contact the local police authority.

6/25/2012: MISSING MAN: Jakub Gorowski (38) vanished from Provo, Utah on 5/18/2012 after traveling from Poland to Provo on 5/11/2012. He told his family and friends he’d be gone for two weeks, but on 5/18/2012 he silently walked out of his friends’ home and never returned. Police have been searching for the 38-year-old man ever since. Gorowski traveled on a tourist visa and was staying with Marius Redzikowski, who said it was strange for his friend to vanish.

“It’s really out of character for him to disappear,” Redzikowski said.

Redzikowski has known Gorowski for 20 years and both men come from the same street in Poland. According to Redzikowski, his missing friend served an LDS mission and graduated from Brigham Young University roughly eight years ago. He was visiting friends and former mission acquaintances during his visit to Provo.

Police have listed Gorowski on missing person databases and searched local hospitals. Redzikowski added that he has talked to Gorowski’s friends and family in Poland, but everyone said the trip was only supposed to last a couple of weeks. Officials also are working on accessing Gorowski’s bank accounts to see if there has been any recent activity.

Redzikowski said that other than some minor depression in the past, Gorowski has no known medical issues. He is roughly 80 percent fluent in English, Redzikowski added.

Gorowski stands 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds and has a surgical scar on his right leg. He also wears glasses.

Anyone with information about Gorowski’s whereabouts is urged to call Provo police at (801) 852-7266 or (801) 852-6210.

    Just so you know he was found in the last couple of days. It appears that he died after a climbing accident (fall) in the mountains outside of Provo. Here is a link to the story were his body was identified. Sorry for your loss. http://www.ksl.com/?sid=29583126&nid=148&title=body-found-in-provo-canyon-identified&s_cid=queue-1

    Sadly, they have just found and identified his body. I don’t know if you were aware of this development or not. He may have been out hiking and slipped, but they haven’t really said much more yet as it is still early on in the investigation. At least friends and family may now have some closure. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?sid=29583126&nid=148&title=body-found-in-provo-canyon-identified&s_cid=queue-2
