Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Tsolakis was last seen at the Greek American Sports Club in the 600 block of Maple Street in Marlborough, Connecticut on February 23, 1992. At 11:30 p.m. he called his wife to say he was on his way home. He never arrived and none of his family members ever heard from him again.
On March 20, nearly a month later, his red Fiat was found at the Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut, covered in snow. An employee at the casino claimed Tsolakis had been issued a complimentary buffet ticket at the casino on March 16. The business's security cameras from that time period were erased before the police could look at them, however, and they weren't able to prove whether Tsolakis had really been there or not.
Tsolakis was heavily in debt to many creditors in the community at the time of his disappearance; he reportedly owed at least $200,000, including $147,000 in back taxes. He had gotten in trouble with the law for non-payment of taxes, writing bad checks and operating his pizza business without a permit.
The court ordered him to pay $5,500 in restitution over two years, but Tsolakis hadn't been making the restitution payments. Some of his friends believe he was afraid of going to jail, but others said he didn't seem depressed and was behaving normally before his disappearance.
None of Tsolakis's relatives in the local area, in Florida or in Greece have heard from him. Although some theorize he fled the country to avoid his financial problems, his family stated he was a devoted husband and father to his three children and wouldn't have abandoned them. His case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
