Search for missing freshman leaves Ewing college students on edge

Posted: Updated:

Students at the College of New Jersey say the weekend disappearance of a freshman classmate has them feeling nervous and scared.

John Fiocco, 19, of Mantua Township, was last seen Saturday in his dormitory in Wolfe Hall. Police appear to be focusing on the dumpsters behind Fiocco's dorm in their investigation. Authorities took one of the dumpsters away on a flatbed truck at approximately 2:40 p.m. Thursday.

Students on campus say the disappearance has left them on edge. An e-mail sent by the school's president informed students that another person, a female sophomore, has also gone missing. However, it is not believed the two disappearances are related.
