Car Of SeaTac Man Missing Since Feb. 13th Found In Federal Way
A missing SeaTac-area man’s car has been found in Federal Way, according to KING-TV.
Nicholas Francisco, 28, was last seen around 6 p.m. on February 13 as he was leaving work in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood.
His red 1992 Toyota Paseo hatchback was found at the Heritage Condos at 123 S. 340th Street in the Panther Lake area of Federal Way at 10:20 a.m. Monday.
Family members plan to start searching that area and hand out flyers.
Federal Way Police say, as far as they know, Francisco has no connection to the Heritage Condos.
Francisco is about six feet tall. He was last seen wearing a light-blue or off-white button-down short, a black jacket and blue jeans.
There’s a $5,000 reward in the case.
“We just need him to come home,” said Christine Francisco, wife of Nicholas Francisco, who disappeared after leaving his Queen Anne office.
“I am begging everybody, begging everybody to please, please help me find my husband because I cannot live my life without him,” she said.
Deputies also have been pinging his cell phone, but have gotten no response. Nicholas’ co-workers say his cell phone batteries were dead on his last day at work.
Just before he vanished, Nicholas called his wife and promised his 4-year-old daughter, Zea, he’d make Valentine’s Day cookies with her, but never showed.
The Franciscos also have a son, Noah, age 2 1/2, and Christine is pregnant with their third child, due in early October.
“If you can’t find him, these kids won’t have a daddy then,” Christine said in an interview, breaking into tears. “This unborn baby won’t have a daddy.”
In their last phone conversation, from Nicholas’ work phone, he told his wife that he was “signing off on something,” then planned to head home after running an errand at Costco for her.
“He told me he loved me,” she said.
Francisco’s co-workers on Friday combed the streets around Francisco’s work and retraced his route home, hoping to find some sign of the missing man.
“Literally there is no place to search,” said King County sheriff’s spokesman John Urquhart. “What we have to do is our investigative work and try to track him either through cell phone or bank records.”
“It’s not normal for him to make stops, have hangouts or go visit anyone else,” said one co-worker. “He’s a man who comes home after work.”
Christine Francisco said there has been no activity in Nicholas’ e-mail or bank account since he vanished.
Francisco stands about 6 feet tall and was last seen wearing a light blue and white button-down shirt, a plain black jacket and a pair of blue jeans.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged call 911 immediately.
