Nick Pratico's mom and dad are desperate for your help and prayers. And now they're offering reward money.

Nicky, 18 years old from Hamilton, has been missing for several weeks now, last seen at Mercer County Community College on Sept. 20th. And his family really needs your help in sharing his picture and story in case anyone out there can help find him.

He had a promising college scholarship to a performing arts school and his sister says he would not have just disappeared. He was last seen at the community college campus where he was going to take a couple of classes before going to NYC to begin at the performing arts college.

His family says he had so much going for him and disappearing would have been totally out of character for this 6 ft. tall teen.

As a mom of two teen boys, my heart is breaking as more and more time goes by without this family knowing how to find their son. Please call the Hamilton Police at 609-581-4000.
