Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Nicole was last seen on September 22, 2007 in Rockledge, Florida.
Cuomo, an experienced spearfisherman, was diving with a friend about 15 miles off Jupiter Inlet when she failed to resurface. Her friends searched for about an hour before calling for help. The Coast Guard searched 2,080 square miles for over 24 hours.
When the Coast Guard search ended, Cuomo’s family and friends pulled together to continue. During a search of the waters near Cape Canaveral, a chartered twin-engine plane carrying Lippitt spotted the diving buoy — 118 nautical miles north of where Cuomo was last seen. No other trace of Cuomo was found.
