  • Details of Disappearance
    Richard was last seen with his friend, Danielle Imbo, at approximately 11:45 p.m. at a restaurant in the vicinity of the 500 block of South Street in Philadelphia, PA.

    Richard's vehicle is also missing and is described as a black over silver, four door, 2001 Dodge Dakota with a 99 NASCAR sticker on rear window and PA Lic# YFH2319. There has not been any bank or cell phone activity by Danielle or Richard since they disappeared.

    Friends and family members say neither would have run off, as they are both single parents who are devoted to their children.

    Petrone, who worked at his family's bakery business, and Imbo had known each other since their school years but only began dating after both having children.

    Investigators have reason to believe that Petrone and Imbo were victims of foul play; neither the couple nor the vehicle has been found. Their bank accounts have not been accessed since, and surveillance footage in the area never picked them up. There has been no activity on their cell phones.
