Missing since 2005


Eight years ago Tuesday Richard Petrone Jr. and Danielle Imbo disappeared without a trace after departing from a South Street bar.

Authorities still continue to seek clues leading to the couple’s whereabouts or those responsible for their disappearance with the Citizen’s Crime Commission of the Delaware Valley offering a $50,000 reward for either of those components, according to the FBI.

Petrone, who was residing on the 1600 block of Snyder Avenue, and Imbo, of Mount Laurel, N.J., were last seen leaving what was then Abilene’s Bar, 429 South St., at 11:30 p.m. Feb. 19, 2005 in Petrone’s black ’01 Dodge Dakota pickup truck.

Neither the auto nor the pair have been spotted since, leaving investigators to believe foul play was involved, according to the FBI.

To report information, call the Citizens Crime Commission at 215-546-TIPS (8477), text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.
