December 11th is Nicole Marranca's 28th birthday. She could be spending it with family, instead, they haven't heard from her since August, when she went missing. 

"I talked to her a week before she disappeared" her father, Nick Marranca, said. 

Nicole Marranca had moved to Ithaca from North Tonawanda to live with her mother when she was 15. She would eventually become enthralled in a struggle with drug addiction. 

"She was addicted to heroine and she used crack too" Nicole's step mom, Kelly, said. 

The Marrancas have heard very little information in relation to their daughters disappearance and are just looking for help. 

"Somebody knows something, she didn't just vanish out of thin air" Nick Marranca said. 

If anyone has information regarding the disappearance of Nicole Marranca, they are encouraged to contact the Ithaca Police Department at (607) 272-3245, or visit the Find Nicole Marranca Facebook page.
