A 26-year-old man, Artur Jarmoszko, is missing in Reykjavík. The Reykjavík Metropolitan Police department has released a photo of him, caught on a security camera on Tuesday, February 28, where he is seen walking in downtown Reykjavík. He was last seen in Reykjavík just before midnight that evening.

Artur is lean, with dark, short hair. He is 186 cm tall, with green eyes. He is Polish, but has been living in Iceland for about five years. He is believed to be dressed in a black winter jacket, or a regular jacket, blue jeans and white canvas shoes.

Those who can provide information about his travels or whereabouts are asked to contact the police by calling +354 444-1000, or by sending an email to [email protected], or by sending a Facebook message to the police.

Police have interviewed Artur’s family and friends to try to shed light on his travels and/or plans. They have little to base on, but are looking into computer and phone records in search of clues. Today, they met with representatives from ICE-SAR, and rescue workers are on stand-by, ready to start a search as soon as they find out where the phone was located when it lost power. That could be tonight or tomorrow, Vísir reports.

Artur’s family told Vísir that Artur took the bus downtown on February 28. They said the police told the them that that same day, he withdrew all his money from his account. About two hours after being caught on a security camera in Lækjargata, downtown Reykjavík, his phone was no longer on.

Artur’s younger brother fears he has been harmed. The family does not believe there is any chance Artur committed suicide.

According to Inspector Guðmundur Páll Jónasson, the case is not being investigated as a criminal case at this point, but he said it’s getting absolute priority. He said it’s next to impossible that Artur has left the country.

UPDATE: The report has been corrected. The original version stated that Artur had last been seen in Reykjavík on March 1.
