HOBOKEN - A man missing since Sunday can be seen briefly on Hoboken waterfront security camera, but his family fears it could be the only video available.

Andrew Jarzyk was running along Sinatra Drive when he was captured by a camera between Third and Fourth streets in Hoboken.
  
Within minutes of passing by the camera, he vanished.

Police are frustrated, and so is Jarzyk's family, who has offered a $10,000 reward in the case.

"The last thing we know is him entering the park, we have nothing after that," says Sgt. Anthony Falco.

The family asked residents and businesses to check security cameras on the waterfront, but there is no more video available.

The city of Hoboken hasn't operated its surveillance cameras in at least four years because of the expense, according to city spokesman Juan Melli.

The cameras were "not properly approved and included technology that did not operate effectively at night or in inclement weather," Melli says.

It is not known if city cameras could have solved the mystery of Andrew Jarzyk's disappearance.
  
Melli says a new system of HD security cameras will be installed soon with money from a Homeland Security grant received two weeks ago.
    
The family has organized a large search party which plans to meet at Pier A in Hoboken on Saturday.
