Nathan never made it to a scheduled Friday morning rehearsal for a performance at The Monocle in The Grove later that evening, and he didn’t find a substitute or call his fellow musicians to let them know he wouldn’t be there, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. His family filed a missing person’s report with St. Louis police that night.

Nathan grew up in Highland and studied music

A missing tourist scattered Bible pages in Israel’s desert. Is ‘Jerusalem Syndrome’ to blame?

The Negev desert was imposing, but Moses sent 12 scouts to survey the rolling dunes in what is now Israel to search for sanctuary, the story in the Hebrew Bible goes.

Now the region is being combed by an entirely different search operation following the bizarre disappearance of a devout Irish gardener in November. He may have suffered from Jerusalem Syndrome — a rare but unsettling psychotic episode in which tourists in Israel suffer delusions of grand religious missions and sometimes even believe they are biblical figures.

Oliver McAfee, a 29-year-old living in Essex, England, was due home in early December following a bicycle adventure along the Israel National Trail, a 631-mile pilgrimage running north to south that includes religious sites.

But he vanished in November, with few clues about his whereabouts. He was last seen on the trail near Mitzpe Ramon, and hikers found his bike, tent, clothes and other equipment, said Micky

Family asking for help in search of missing St. Louis musician last …

ST. LOUIS • A Metro East father is asking for help in the search for his missing son, a St. Louis-based musician and keyboardist who disappeared Friday. 

“We’re casting as wide a net as we can,” John Jatcko, of Highland, said. “I just want to talk to my son and know he’s OK.”

Nathan Jatcko, 31,  of St. Louis was last seen about 1:30 a.m. Friday at his apartment on Lawn Avenue near South Kingshighway, hours before a scheduled morning rehearsal for a performance at The Monocle in The Grove later that evening. 

Jatcko never made it to either the rehearsal or performance, and he didn’t find a substitute or call his fellow musicians to let them know he wouldn’t be there. His family filed a missing person’s report with St. Louis Police that evening. 

The sudden disappearance is uncharacteristic for the longtime musician well known in the St. Louis jazz community, John Jatcko said.
