    Renewed Effort In Pennsylvania To Resolve Missing Persons Cases With Help Of NaMus

    It’s been called the nation’s silent disaster. There are about 100,000 missing people in the United States and nearly 1,000 of them are from the Delaware Valley. There are also 40,000 cases of unidentified remains.

    From Philadelphia to Harrisburg, there is a renewed effort to resolve the cases.

    In response, state Rep. Lynda Culver is backing a bill that requires Pennsylvania authorities to contribute to NaMus.

    “It’s gotta be excruciating if you are a family member of a loved one who has gone missing with no trace, no closure,” Culver said.

    A puzzling case for police has been the disappearance of Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo from South Street in 2005. The couple is listed in NaMus.

    “Helps police department, helps the families, important tool in terms of entries,” said Ryan Gallagher, forensics lab manager for the Philadelphia Police Department.

    “I have high hopes the law will pass,” Fritz said.

    The legislation will bring attention to the cause of the missing.

    So, are only specific counties contributing to NamUs? Does PSP SOP not specify where information should be uploaded to? Perhaps I'm confused and thought that all states worked with NamUs.

    Pretty sure there's no national requirement to work with NamUs. Some states/counties/cities have mandated that their cases be uploaded to NamUs. But it's not done on a nationwide scale at all, unfortunately.

    Dulce Maria Alavez joins 9 others from Philly area on FBI list of high-profile missing-person cases

    When the FBI put Dulce Maria Alavez on its “Most Wanted” list of missing or kidnapped people this week, the 5-year-old Bridgeton, N.J., girl joined nine others from around the Philadelphia region whose disappearances have baffled investigators for years.

    The FBI list includes about 90 people in total.

    Danielle Imbo was estranged from her husband when she started dating Richard Petrone in 2004. On Feb. 19, 2005, Imbo, then 34, and Petrone, then 35, went on a date that took them to Abilene’s, a since-closed Tex-Mex restaurant in Philadelphia’s Society Hill section. After they left, the couple and Petrone’s 2001 Dodge Dakota with the Pennsylvania license plate YFH-2319 were never seen again. Their phones powered off and died. Their bank accounts went untouched.

    The FBI, which suspects foul play, is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the couple’s disappearance.

    Imbo, whose maiden name was Ottobre, would be 49 if she is still alive. Petrone would be 50.
