As a mom of two teenage boys, I can only imagine the nightmare that this family is going through.

18-year old Nick Pratico was dropped off by a family member to take a placement test at Mercer County Community College on Sept. 20th. He never came home.

His family says this is completely out of character for him; that he has so much to look forward to with a scholarship to a performing arts school in NYC that he is scheduled to attend in the spring, and loads of talent that he is looking forward to being able to continue to express.

There have been search parties, prayer vigils, and social media shares while this family from Hamilton prays to bring their son back home, as they send out messages that they hope he will see telling him to keep fighting to come home and that he is loved unconditionally.

Nick has no history of running away or mental instability. Hamilton police say there is a chance he could have gone to NYC.

Please pray for his safety and share this info.
