Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Mandy Ciehanoski was reported missing by family members on February 14. However, she hasn’t been seen since about a week before then, when she left her home in Holly Hill to help a friend with an errand, on February 7, 2011. A friend's pickup she had been driving was found abandoned at a park in Ormond Beach February 8.
In 2014, Michael Annicchiarico was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Mandy, his former girlfriend. Evidence included blood-stained sheets in his closet, blood in the trunk of his car and discarded latex gloves. Annicheerico had a jealous obsession with Ciehanoski, who had become engaged to someone else.
Initially, Annicchiarico told detectives he hadn't seen his former girlfriend for two years. Later, he said they talked on December 3. Finally, after being confronted with evidence from surveillance video of the two together, he admitted that he saw Ciehanoski February 7, the last day she was seen alive. One of Annicchiarico’s friends told sheriff’s investigators that Annicchiarico had admitted killing Ciehanoski, and another one of his friends said he had been threatening to kill her for years.
Michael Annicchiarico pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and was to get a lighter sentence if he led investigators to the victim's body. The killer led them to a wooded area at the Volusia/Flagler county line. For three days dozens of investigators searched the area, clearing brush and digging up anything suspicious. Mandy was not located.
