Original article: An Ithaca College senior has been missing since Thursday morning, and friends and family members have reached out for any clues as to her whereabouts. The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department is leading the investigation into the disappearance of Kristin Jannotti, a senior in IC’s School of Music.
Kristin’s car, a dark blue 1997 Toyota Corolla last seen in Binghamton, is gone, but her cell phone was left behind, according to Maria Jannotti, a family member.
According to Ithaca College, because Kristin lives in an off-campus residence in the Town of Ithaca, the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department is conducting the missing person’s investigation, with the assistance of Ithaca College’s Office of Public Safety. The college says Public Safety is “actively assisting in the investigation and aggressively working leads” on the case.
“Please do not hesitate to share any information at all,” says friend Marci Rose. “Anything could be helpful.”
In addition to being a music major, Kristin is an active member and leader in Awaken, a student-run Christian organization at Ithaca College.
“Any member of the community who might have pertinent information related to Kristin’s whereabouts is asked to immediately provide it to the Sheriff’s Office by calling 607-272-2444,” according to a statement from IC. The college released this photo of Kristin on Friday evening.
