Federal authorities say a Georgia college professor suspected in the shooting deaths of his wife and two other men outside a community theater has a ticket for a flight to the Netherlands for May 2 and they can't find his passport. Authorities have been searching for 57-year-old George Zinkhan since Saturday's shootings in Athens, about 70 miles east of Atlanta. Police say the marketing professor has a house in Amsterdam, where he teaches part-time.

It was unclear when the ticket was purchased.

In a federal court affidavit Monday, an FBI agent says no one knows where Zinkhan is. Officials have searched his office and he hasn't contacted family, friends or students.

Authorities say they found Zinkhan's passport wallet, but the passport is missing.
