FBI Seeks Information on Disappearance, 16 Years Ago Today, of Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone, Jr.

The FBI, Philadelphia Police Department, New Jersey State Police, Mount Laurel Police Department, and Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office are seeking the public’s assistance as we continue to investigate the disappearance, 16 years ago today, of Danielle (Ottobre) Imbo and Richard Petrone, Jr.

They were last seen in the late evening hours of Saturday, February 19, 2005, leaving a bar on Philadelphia’s South Street for Rich’s black 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. An extensive investigation to date has generated some promising leads; however, neither they nor the vehicle have ever been located.

The investigation into Danielle and Rich’s disappearance remains open and active, with additional personnel currently assisting the case team in reviewing intelligence and interviewing individuals who may be able to help advance this case.

There is still a $50,000 reward for information on the couple’s whereabouts, or for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for their disappearance.

The reward is being administered by the Philadelphia Citizens Crime Commission. Anyone with information that may assist investigators is urged to call the Citizens Crime Commission tip line at 215-546-TIPS (215-546-8477). Tipsters can remain anonymous.
