Circumstances of Disappearance

Danielle Imbo, was last seen with her friend, Richard Petrone, Jr., at approximately 11:45 p.m. at Abilene's bar and restaurant in the vicinity of the 500 block of South Street in Philadelphia.

Richard's vehicle, a black over silver, four door, 2001 Dodge Dakota pick-up truck with a 99 NASCAR sticker on the rear window and Pennsylvania Lic# YFH2319, is also missing.

Richard was supposed to drive Danielle back to her Dunbarton Road condo in Mount Laurel, NJ, but never arrived. Reviews of tapes at multiple Delaware bridges and toll plazas turned up no evidence that Richard's vehicle ever crossed into New Jersey.

There has been no activity on her bank account, credit cards, or cell phone.

Danielle was estranged from her husband, Joseph Imbo, who has a solid alibi for the night of the couple's disappearance. A grand jury convened at least 6 years ago, interviewing people close to Joe, but took no action.

In 2008, the FBI announced that the case was being treated as murder-for-hire. In 2015, they stated that they suspect that more than one person was involved in the "orchestrated act" of the couple's disappearance. 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 Richard and Danielle.
