Anthony was last seen on October 15, 1966 leaving his house on his bike, to go to a friend's house. The boys had spent the morning delivering "Inquirer" papers. Afterward, they hung out with friends on the steps of nearby Lady of Consolation School, where they were eighth-graders. They parted just before 15.00 to head to their respective homes for supper, planning to meet up again afterward.
Anthony never arrived at his friend's house and has not been seen or heard from since. As his parents thought he spent the night at his friends house, they didn't discover he was missing until Anthony failed to return home to deliver his newspapers the next morning.
At first detectives figured the teen had a motive to run away. Just before he vanished, Anthony had argued with his parents about his paper route, which they wanted him to quit to focus on his school grades.
Anthony had left an uncashed paycheck, some money and all his belongings in his bedroom.
Anthony is described as stubborn and independent, and naive. He was very family oriented. His family and friends do not believe he ran away, but think that he was the victim of an accident or foul play.
