Kettle Moraine High School graduate Nick Wilcox is still missing, despite continued efforts by police, family and friends to locate the 24-year-old Milwaukee resident.

Now, a fund has been established to help keep the search going. Donations are accepted at any Associated Bank, or mail them to the Oconomowoc branch at 1456 Summit Ave.

Wilcox was last seen outside of Milwaukee's Irish Rec Room, in 1000 block of North Old World Third Street, early New Year's Day. Wilcox was out celebrating on New Year's Eve with friends and reportedly left the bar before 2 a.m.

A candlelight vigil is planned for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Rusty's Old 50, 730 N. Old World Third St., according to the Facebook page Please Help Find Nick Wilcox.

Social media is still abuzz, with Twitter users sharing their thoughts about Wilcox's disappearance.

"Don McGonagil still praying. My niece's long time boyfriend, Nick Wilcox, went missing New Year's Eve," Jim Moore wrote on Jan. 22.

The Facebook page set up to help in the search is also still receiving posts from community members, many of whom have been speculating about foul play in his disappearance.

Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said no evidence has been brought forth linking the deaths by drowning of several Midwestern men, many still think the tragedies are the work of a serial killer who targets popular and athletic young, white males.

A search party organized by friends and family has so far found no signs of Wilcox, despite distributing leaflets and combing Milwaukee's Third Ward. An awareness walk was held on Jan. 10 in Wilcox's honor. Digital billboard space in Milwaukee was also donated by Clear Channel Communications to help alert the community to Wilcox's disappearance.

The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) is still investigating, said Sgt. Mark Stanmeyer. "He remains missing, the investigation is still open, and we are still searching for him," Stanmeyer said.

Nick Wilcox is blond-haired and blue-eyed, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. Anyone with information about his disappearance is encouraged to call the MPD at (414) 935-7403.
