A member of my family has gone missing. No one has seen or heard from her in almost a month. On June 25th she posted a status on facebook that read "Just keep swimming." her location in this post also read Effingham, IL.
She is 24 to 25 years old. Her name is Jacki, Bentkowski is her maiden name. I do not know her current last name they were only married a short period. She has recently been on a self destructive downward spiral. She was known to be using Coke as well as any other amphetamine she could find.
She is originally from the south suburbs of Chicago. Her Mom &other family reside in Utah. She does have an uncle in southern, Illinois around Marion.
Effingham has alot of sentimental value to her. In 1996-1997 her Father was found dead in a wooded area around Effingham. He died of a heart attack walking home from a near by town area. She was only 7 years old. He went missing in April and his body was found by hunters in September-October.
In the past year Jacki has been married, divorced, and moved from Utah back to Chicago. In Chicago she got wrapped up in drugs. Lost her son to her mother in Utah, lost her job, her car, and her place to live.
We have reason to believe that she may have been suicidal and or wrapped up with some bad people. We don't find the Effingham location to be a coincidence. Its too symbolic to her life.
If anyone knows anything of her where abouts or of any Jane Does found in a lake, pond, river, or any other body of water please let me know ASAP. I have other family utilizing some other resources as well.
You may contact me by E-mail if you know anything at all, or have heard anything similar in nearby small towns. Again our whole family is concerned. Thank you in advance for any information your able to provide me with.
Since: Jun 12

I have not heard anything in the news about any Jane Does but I will keep you in mind if I do. I know my name says I am from Geogia but I am from Effingham area. How old is she now? What does she look like? Any Tatoos? Birth marks?

She is about 25 years old. Blonde hair. About 5'3". She has a few tattoos. I know she has a rose cover up on her wrist & a unicorn on one of her ankles. I haven't seen her in a few months so I'm not sure if she has any more. She weighs between 120 & 130. Maybe less as I said she was using coke.
