The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the disappearance of this couple, Danielle Imbo and Richard Petrone.

The two vanished after spending time with friends at a south Philadelphia bar back on February 19, 2005.

Case agent Vito Roselli says Richard told friends they would drive home in his black Dodge Dakota pickup truck.

Vito Roselli: All we know is that it was parked somewhere in the vicinity of where the bar was because he made a comment about he got lucky with his parking spot.

Halpern: The pair—who knew each other since high school—started dating a few months after Danielle split from her estranged husband.

They both had become single parents.

Danielle was raising her son in her home in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey where she worked for a mortgage company.

Danielle’s brother, John Ottobre…

John Ottobre: We just miss her, we really do, we miss her terribly. She was a great mother; she was a great person

Halpern: Richard had a daughter, and lived above the family bakery in Ardmore, Pennsylvania where he worked.

Richard’s mother, Marge, says life hasn’t been the same without her only son.

Marge Petrone: Those two should still be here today seeing their children grow up.

Halpern: The FBI and its law enforcement partners need your help to solve this case.

Roselli: All of the investigators, including myself have put their heart and soul into this case. The family needs to get some closure on this and hopefully we can bring it.

Halpern: If you have any information call your local FBI office. I’m Mollie Halpern with Wanted by the FBI.
