WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Words can hardly describe how Celius Cherisma and the rest of his family and friends feel.

"I feel bad, I feel bad," he said.

A piece of them is missing.

Celius' son, Franztzdy Cherisma, an FAU accounting student has vanished without a trace.

"Some friends came in here and told me 'you have try food, eat something'. I can't do that," he said.

He really hasn't been able to eat for nine agonizing days since Franztzdy got in his 1997, Green Nissan Pathfinder last Tuesday night.

He had just finished class and was heading home to the Tennis Tower apartment her shared with dad.

"He's not that type of person who would have done something like this, run away," said friend Jean Murvilus.

"Me and my son are so close. My son was good, good guy you know," added Cherisma.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deems the disappearance suspicious.

Cherisma hasn't withdrawn any money from his accounts, his phone has been shut off and no one at work, Total Wine in Boca Raton, has heard from him.

For now this family hopes and prays the worst case scenario won't happen.

"We have hope no matter where he is, God will bring him back home," said uncle Dieunonccent Cherisma.

Franztzdy is 5'8" and weighs 150 pounds. The license plate of his SUV is E78 3HX.
