Erika Cirioni: Missing From Norwich, CT
New Year's Day will always be different for the Cirioni family, including the two sons of Erika Cirioni who has been missing from Norwich, CT since January 1, 2007. Instead of ringing in a New Year full of hope and renewed dreams, their New Year is spent remembering a loved one who is lost.
Erika Cirioni was a known substance abuser, and got mixed up with the wrong people, but one constant thing in her life was her close family. They report that she was trying to turn a corner in her life, wanting to go to rehab and make life better for herself and her children.
New Year's Eve was the last time Erika was seen by her family. Getting ready and making arrangements for celebrating in downtown Norwich's First Night festivities, Erika stopped by her mother's house as she was walking downtown. There were reports that she was seen walking the next morning, January 1, on Boswell Avenue.
For two young boys time stopped when their mother vanished. Holidays since then have come and gone, but they don't hold quite the same meaning until their is an answer waiting for them. There have been tips and searches conducted for Erika, but as of this time, nothing has turned up to give her boys what they need to know.
Recently Connecticut has started participating in an innovative new project, distributing playing cards within their prisons and jails with pictures of unsolved and missing cases victims. As convicts are playing cards, the hope is that one of them will recognize a face and disclose information that will solve the cases. Erika Cirioni's picture is on the six of diamonds.
