Through the prayers of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker and Bishop of Myra in Lycia, may the Lord have mercy on Nicholas and bring him home safely.

Unfortunately it is increasingly looking like he just took off on his family. Please pray that either dead or alive he is found.

Just an update-

Nicholas was found alive and well in another state this month. He had walked out on his (then) wife and 2 (soon to be 3) children. They are garnishing his wages and giving the money to his now ex-wife. She gave birth to their third child, remarried and moved across the country.

Christine divorced him April 2008 and he has no custody or visitation rights whatsoever.

I am extremely happy they found him. I hope he has to pay the therapy bills for all three kids for the rest of their lives though. :-\ Especially their youngest son. To find out daddy left as soon as he found out mommy was pregnant with him....ugh. :'(

May the Lord forgive Nicholas for all his past transgressions and set Nicholas back on the straight and narrow path.

May the Lord allow Nicholas to be reunited with his children at the appropriate time.

Lord have Mercy.

Amen!

Update on the case, interview of the once Nicholas.

http://www.kirotv.com/video/22529635/index.html



Warning- expletives aplenty.

Quote
- A large community that mobilized to form multiple search parties and post fliers couldn't find out what happened to Nicholas Francisco, because they were looking for the wrong guy.
They wanted to find a devoted father of two with a third on the way, a husband of seven years and a recently promoted art director of the respected ad agency Publicis Group.


He obviously still needs a great deal of prayer. He appears to be quite (literally) a miserable person. And prayers for his eldest child Zea would be good too. That girl absolutely adored her father.
