Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone have been missing since February 19th, 2005. They were last seen leaving Abilene, a restaurant in Philadelphia.
Friends and family have set up this website, http://www.danielleimbo.com/ , to help find her.
An interesting statistic, Philadelphia has had 4,500 missing persons reports filed since the beginning of this year. The disappearance of this couple has the same trademarks of the Latoyia Figueroa case reports the Philadelphia Enquirer.
The last adult missing-persons case in Philadelphia that generated the same amount of media attention as Figueroa’s concerned Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone Jr., who were last seen leaving a South Street bar on Feb. 19. Like Figueroa, they were not the disappearing kind. Imbo, 34, of South Jersey, and Petrone, 35, of Philadelphia, each had a child, a job, and a close-knit family.
Yet neither of them – nor Petrone’s 2001 Dodge Dakota – has been found. Their credit cards and cellular telephones have not been used. They have made no attempts to contact their families.
The Imbo and Petrone families, like the Figueroa family, made themselves available to the media, organized high-profile searches, and helped raise large reward funds.
This is exactly what Bruno of the National Center for Missing Adults advises families to do: give the media “something new to report, create an event,” just make something happen to keep their loved one in the public eye.
