A family of four goes missing after their father makes a strange 911 call

A Fremont, Michigan family has disappeared after police said the family’s father was exhibiting paranoid behavior over the weekend and that his mother-in-law, who has dementia and requires 24-hour care, was discovered walking with her wandered through the neighborhood Monday.

Late Saturday night, Anthony “Tony” Cirigliano, 51, made an odd and perhaps paranoid call to 911. During a two-minute conversation with a dispatcher, he requested immediate “police protection” and requested a specific officer’s name. He also indicated that his reasons for calling were related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and were therefore of “vital national interest.”

“[P]People want to wipe me off the face of the earth.” Cirigliano said the dispatcher.

“I’m not crazy,” he added.

About 45 minutes later, Fremont police officers arrived at the Cirigliano residence. They spoke to Tony and his wife Suzette, also 51, and eventually determined that no one in the house was in immediate danger. The police left the house early Sunday morning.

Since then, no one has seen or heard from the couple or their two sons, Brandon, 19, and Noah, 15. There was no activity on their credit cards or Tony’s cell phone. A search of the home revealed that the other three family members’ cell phones had been turned off and left behind. The family’s pets were also found at the residence.

The family is believed to be traveling in a silver 2005 Toyota Sienna LE minivan Neighbors said was only recently bought.

Tony works in finance and may be self-employed, and Suzette is a housewife to her two sons, who are said to have “high-functioning autism.” Suzette is also a full-time carer for her mother, who has severe dementia. Her mother, whose name was not released, was spotted Monday wandering around the neighborhood where the Ciriglianos live. She has since been placed in the care of another relative.

The Ciriglianos’ disappearance has baffled both Fremont PD and the Michigan State Police, who are helping the investigation.

“They seem like really good people,” Fremont Police Chief Tim Rodwell said. “Nobody had any problems with them.”

“Everyone describes [Tony] as an extremely loving father who is devoted to his family,” added Rodwell. “For the officers at Fremont, it was really all on deck.”

Neighbors also described the four family members as quiet couch potatoes who don’t cause trouble.

“They were always friendly,” said neighbor Sue Schondelmeyer. “When I moved in, they brought me cookies.”

Police hope the family hears the news of her disappearance and realizes that many people are concerned about her. Anyone with information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact the Fremont Police Department at 231-924-2100.
