Case #: 79-13004
Nicholas Peter Zizzamia
Date of Last Contact: May 12, 1979
Date of Birth: 10/30/1956
Weight: 290 lbs.
Nicholas Peter Zizzamia left his parents’ house in Cherry Hill on May 12, 1979, to drive to Villanova University in Pennsylvania to pick up tickets for their graduation ceremony on May 12. He was a senior accounting major at the university at the time. He never showed up at the university. When his parents attended the ceremony, their son was not there. He has never been heard from again. The vehicle Nicholas was last seen driving was found parked and locked behind his father’s business, a barbershop on Grove Street, in Cherry Hill, on May 15, three days after his disappearance. Nothing suspicious was found inside the car. He was last seen wearing a tan sweater with blue jeans and white sneakers.
Nicholas never used his driver’s license, his Social Security number or his credit card after his disappearance.
One theory that has been brought forward was that Nicholas may have committed suicide or left on his own accord; his friends stated he was unhappy with his life and had spoken about wanting to vanish.
Nicholas was an only child. His parents hired a private detective to try and find him, but without success. His mother died in 2003 and his father died in 2012. His case remains unsolved.
