How do I locate the Identity of a nuisance phone caller and make him stop calling.

Every evening at about 8:30 9pm EST, I begin to receive calls from the same number. In one night, I calculated a cumulative number of calls at 1 at every 41/2 seconds. I finnaly called the number myself - hiding my caller ID - to see who was calling and all I got was an unitellagible VM message.
The calls typically end before they go to my VM. Only once has the caller left a VM - he just wanted to say hi. The voice on the caller's VM and the voice left on my VM are the same - male, 20ish, garbled.
The number is in-state - NH, 603 - and all attempts to find the caller's identity have failed. Reverse directory searches and web searches have yelded no returns. I should mention that my only phone is a Cingular cell line and I am extreamly shy about giving out any personal information; ever. I am assuming that the caller is using a cell because I can't find any public record of the number.
So . . . How do I locate the caller (or shouuld I) and who do I talk to to have this taken care of?
