KIRO-TV Tracks Down “Missing” Man Nicholas Francisco
This week, KIRO-TV tracked down and interviwed one-time SeaTac resident Nicholas Francisco, who now goes by the name Alex Martin and lives in Los Angeles.
Francisco went missing after leaving his work at an ad agency in Seattle two years ago; he was supposedly heading home to bake cookies with his children. His car was found abandoned at a condominium complex a few days later in Federal Way, and an extensive investigation was conducted to see if he had been a victim of foul play.
Dozens, if not hundreds, of volunteers spent days looking for him, and thousands of dollars was spent in the search as well.
Nothing ever turned up, and subsequently his wife divorced him in absentia after having his third child – that is, until last November when King County Sheriff’s Department detectives found him alive and well, living under a new name in another state.
This week, KIRO-TV tracked him down and interviewed him – watch it here (it’s a very compelling video).
