About a hundred people gathered to release balloons Sunday in honor of a missing teenager’s 20th birthday. Zachary Malinowski has been missing since August 25, 2013.

Zachary is son of Missy Marcus, and they lived in the Man area of Logan County until he was 10 years old. He went to school and 4-H camps with many of the area youth. He is the great-grandson of the late Leroy & Bea Mays, the grandson of Jumbo and Pat Marcus and the late Sandra (Soni) Mays Marcus, and the great nephew of the Rev. Earl and Debi Robinson of Accoville, whom he spent most of his time until he moved to S.C.

Malinowski went missing Sunday, August 25, 2013, after to playing basketball with two of his friends , going to on to Aynor, S.C., then leaving alone to get something to eat at approximately 11:30 p.m. That was the last time anyone saw him.

A relative found his burned car in a wooded area outside of Conway, on September 2, 2013, but there was no sign of the teenager. His uncle, Earl Robinson, says they are still searching for the young man, but not as intently.
