family reported Anthony Cirigliano had acted paranoid on Sunday. Suzette Cirigliano and Anthony Cirigliano are married and have two sons, Noah and Brandon.
At around 12:40 p.m., Cirigliano called Fremont headquarters and calmly asked for the police to be sent to his home. During the call, Cirigliano says he needs immediate police protection regarding information he had about 9/11.
He claims that the information he had is of vital national interest and expressed concern that people would want to see him “erased from the face of the earth”.
This was Cirigliano’s first and only call to the police before the family’s disappearance.
Despite Cirigliano’s claims, the Fremont officer mentioned in the phone call does not know Anthony Cirigliano.
Through inquiries into the Cirigliano home, Fremont Police Chief Tim Rodwell estimates the family likely left their home between 4pm and 8pm Monday
The family left behind their pets and one family member who requires full-time care. According to police, their cell phones were turned off.
Surveillance video from the BP gas station in Gulliver, Michigan, showed the family buying gas and snacks between 10:40 a.m. and 10:55 a.m. Monday. Police confirmed this information with a gas station employee on Friday morning and released images from the surveillance camera.
Fremont Police said one of the children tried to use a gas station phone to make a call, but it appeared to be unsuccessful.
Police say they may be in a silver 2005 Toyota Sienna with registration number DJL1982.
