QUEENSTOWN, Md. - Police are still looking for information about a missing Queenstown man.

The Queen Anne's County Office of the Sheriff says on November 11th, they received a call about a missing tenant, 59-year-old James Colicchio, from the business park on 4H Park Road, who hadn't been seen in about two months. On that same day, relatives of Colicchio, reportedly spoke with the property's landlord, who also said they hadn't heard from him in about two months.

Deputies say they were able to go into the unit, and found that Colicchio had been living there with personal items, and several cats inside. The cats were apparently surviving off of spoiled food, Styrofoam, and food wrappings, so animal control came and removed them. The perishable food items found in the unit apparently had expiration dates of early September.

Police say there were two of Colicchio's vehicles outside of the unit, one which looked like it was being fixed, with tools left out. According to the report, Colicchio's cell phone hadn't made any calls for weeks, and had been turned off, and his bank account, which had money in it, that hadn't been touched since September 3rd.

Police say during their investigation, they learned that Colicchio was a stone mason by trade, who could be a loner, and that he had lived in Clinton, Rockville, and Fort Washington in the past. Colicchio's last contact with his family was apparently a strange text message, sent to his brother, on Labor Day.

Colicchio had reportedly been having issues with another tenant at the complex, and felt that some of his cats had been shot on purpose. On August 29th, Deputies say they responded to a neighboring unit about a damaged door lock, and a dead cat on the door step. On September 6th, Colicchio was charged with malicious destruction of property, in connection to the incident, but the warrant hasn't been served.

On November 27th, Delmarva Search and Rescue Team searched the area, including Baker's gravel pit, and the Sheriff's Aviation Unit flew over, all with no signs of Colicchio having been found.

Colicchio is described as a white male, 6'1" tall, weighing 210 pounds, with gray hair and green eyes. Anyone with information about James Colicchio's whereabouts is asked to call the Queen Anne's County Office of the Sheriff at 410-758-0770 - D/Cpl. Troy Lowery or email sheriff-info@qac.org.
