Circumstances of Disappearance: Authorities are asking for help in finding a 62-year-old Waukegan man who has been missing since Sept. 27.
Isaac Danyus, who lives in the 2300 block of Dover Road, has been missing since helping making the funeral arrangements for his younger sister who died of lung cancer, said his brother, Charles.
“We saw him on Wednesday (Sept. 26) when we made the arrangements,” he said. He met his wife Vicki for breakfast on Thursday, and then he never returned home and never made it to the funeral on Friday. It was very unusual for him.
“This isn’t like him. He spent 34 years at the same job, raised three kids and has been married to the same woman for 37 years,” said Danyus. Isaac Danyus drove a rig for cross-country moves.
His Chevrolet Blazer was found at an apartment complex near Washington Street and Greenleaf Avenue where his son lived almost two years ago.
“We can’t figure out why his truck was there,” his brother said. It was towed because it was parked in a reserved parking space.
Family members went door-to-door in the apartment complex with Isaac’s picture, but had no luck. They also searched a nearby wooded area, checked hospitals and called people in Decatur where they moved from 30 years ago, and no one has seen him.
“It’s a mystery because he is a family man. None of this makes sense,” said Charles.
Danyus is described as a black male with salt-and-pepper hair, 5-feet 9-inches tall and 155 pounds.
Anyone seeing Danyus is asked to contact their local police department or the Waukegan Police Department at (847) 599-2608.
