Nieko Anthony Lisi
Endangered Missing from Jasper, New York since October 1, 2011
Age: 18 -- Height: 5'10"-5'11" -- Weight: 160-170 lbs -- Hair Color: Brown -- Eye Color: Brown
Nieko has 4 large tattoos of angels on his ribcage and abdomen and 4 Chinese symbols on the back of his upper arm. He has a 5-inch scar on his left shin and a round scar on the back of his head. Nieko has a strawberry birthmark between his shoulder blades.
Nieko was last seen on September 30, 2011. He and a 20-year-old friend, Robert Nicholas Neil Knight III, stopped at Nieko's uncle's home at 2:00 pm and said they were going to Buffalo, New York to possibly go camping. They were driving a GMC Canyon which they said they borrowed from Knight's grandfather, but he does not own such a vehicle. Nieko had phone contact with his family the next day, October 1. He may have been spotted in the Franklin/Nashville, Tennessee area that day. He has never been seen or heard from again.
The morning of October 1, Knight arrived at his parent's home in Romulus, Michigan. He said Nieko dropped him off there, but no one actually saw Nieko. On October 3, Nieko's mother received his driver's license in the mail. Someone had found it on a street in Hornell, New York, about 15 minutes from Nieko's home, and mailed it back. His Facebook page had been shut down without warning that same day.
Nieko's family reported him missing on October 5. Michigan police talked to Knight on October 8, during which time he was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Knight was released from the hospital the next day. On October 10, Knight was found deceased of a drug overdose at his parent's home. Authorities haven't said if they think Knight's death and Nieko's disappearance are connected in any way.
Nieko's case remains unsolved.
