Dr. Theodore Giannaris, Uncle of NYS Senator Michael Gianaris, Is Missing

NEW YORK – The 81-year-old Greek-American Dr. Theodoros Giannaris, uncle of New York State Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris, disappeared on June 7 in Manhattan.

According to the 19th Police Precinct Theodore Giannaris was last seen at 9:30 on Sunday morning, on the corner of 63rd Street and 2nd Avenue.

His son, Dimitris Giannaris, told The National Herald that his father left home in the morning for his usual walk, without taking his cell phone, keys, or credit cards with him.

“He was wearing a gray jacket, blue pants, and a light blue shirt. He went out like every day to drink his coffee and smoke a cigarette. He was last seen at the intersection of 63rd Street and 2nd Avenue. No one has seen him since. He did not have his cell phone, cards, keys with him so that they could be used to find him. In other words, it is possible that if he is found somewhere, he won’t be identified.”

At the same time, Giannaris emphasizes that his father is suffering from senile dementia in the early stages, as reported by the 19th Precinct, but has essential mental clarity.

According to his family, Dr. Giannaris usually visited his son-in-law's restaurant in the area. This time, however, the workers reported that he did not enter the restaurant, but remained outside to smoke. He then left apparently and no one has seen him since. Late that night, a woman reported seeing him near a subway station, but his son who went there never found him.

"We have called all the hospitals and we are still calling, but they have no information. I didn't even see him leave. I was sleeping. He got up, took a bath, left and left his things at home. I never saw him again. He usually came back after a while, going around the block near the apartment building. When it was around 11 AM-12 noon, we started to worry,” said his wife, Antonia Giannaris.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Theodore Giannaris should call 911.

In the end, it wasn’t COVID, nor lack of customers – too many of them really – that led Nick Pontikis, 65, to close Thanasi’s Olympus Greek Restaurant, which he opened at 24 years old in Windsor, Ontario.
