The mother and other family members and friends of a missing Georgia man have spent time in DeKalb County the last few days talking to people and distributing “Missing Person’ flyers at local businesses hoping to find someone who has seen him.
Its been two weeks since 22 year old Vincent “Vinnie” Rossetti of Peachtree City, Georgia went missing near Center Hill Lake. He was last seen on Sunday, December 18 and his car, a Lexus, was found later in the parking lot of Sligo Marina beside Highway 70. Authorities do not know if Rossetti is still alive or what has happened to him.
“We’re just desperate. We just want information from anyone that has seen him around town,” said Rossetti’s mother, Pam who spoke with WJLE on Saturday at Sligo Marina on Center Hill Lake where the search is taking place.
“”We have not spoken to him since December 18th. This is day 13 (Saturday) so we’re here passing out flyers to see if anyone has seen him since that date. We just want proof of him being alive,” said Ms. Rossetti.
“He left my daughter’s house on Friday night (December 16) from Birmingham and had been driving around,” she continued.
Ms. Rossetti said the family does not know why he came to this area. “A state Trooper saw him on the side of the road on Sparta Highway (near DeKalb/White County Line December 18) . He was a little disoriented. He had a little bit of depression so I am very worried about his mental state of hurting himself. They took him to the hospital and I talked to him several times. He knew we were coming to pick him up on Sunday night (December 18) but he left the hospital and that’s the last that we’ve heard from him,” said Ms. Rossetti.
“The last supposed sighting is east of the Dollar General Store on Highway 70 heading toward Sparta,” added John Orr, a cousin of Vincent Rossetti
