February 19, 2017: marks the 12th year of Richard's disappearance
Older and colder: Couple's 2005 vanishing remains a mystery
The South Street bar Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo left on the night of Feb. 19, 2005 is long gone.
Petrone's Dodge pick-up truck was never seen again. Imbo's bank account never budged in the days that turned from weeks into years. Not even a reward worth tens of thousands of dollars could pry pertinent information from the public.
"An extensive investigation to date has generated some promising leads; however, neither the victims nor Petrone's vehicle have ever been located," the FBI said Friday in a statement.

Praying for Rich and the family everyday. Enrico Ballezzi, Sr., February 20, 2017
Richard -- I dread this time of year...the month and date you were taken from us. I know you are up there watching us day in and day out. That is what I believe. That is what makes me feel good and can live with that thought. Love you always, Rosemarie Bonavitacola, February 19, 2017
Always in my prayers for closure for your family...Gone, but never forgotten...

Dear Marge and Rich, Just wanted you to know that I'm thinking about you with Love. There are no words. I am eternally sad for your loss and know that I think about you both. ❣ With Sadness And love, Cass,Tom and Matthew Fay, Wednesday, February 15, 2017
Margie and Rich, as the day comes closer I turn the calendar to March so I don't have to see the date. I can't even begin to imagine what you feel every day. Margie when I saw you at T's funeral you looked so much better and then as we talked I could see the pain take over your face. I feel so inadequate with anything I say. I don't think time heals pain I think you just get used to it. I try to choose to think that Richie and T are now our angels and they want us to know they are with us and try to get some kind of comfort from that and know they are in such a wonderful place and have saved a place for us. Again I sit here and am at a loss at what to say. Just know that there are so many people who's life Richie touched and we will never, ever forget him. I will talk to you on the 19th. Be strong, know that so many others are remembering the wonderful person your son was and feel the comfort of knowing that he is with us every second and watching over us. Love You, Diane
