A 29-year-old Northwestern researcher was reported missing Monday.

Corey Janczak, a laboratory coordinator in molecular biosciences, was last heard from on Sunday, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Janczak, an Evanston resident, may have recently been in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood near the Chicago-Evanston border, police said.

No foul play is suspected but his family is concerned about his disappearance, Parrott said. Janczak suffers from depression and has made indications of wanting to harm himself, Parrott said.

Janczak worked in the Keck Biophysics Facility in Cook Hall, 2220 Campus Drive, as an instrumentation specialist.

Police described Janczak as 5-foot-9 and 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact Evanston Police at (847) 866-5000.
