Richard Petrone, Jr. and Danielle Imbo vanished after leaving a bar in the 400 block of South Street in Philadelphia - then known as Abilene's - at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, February 19th, 2005.

Authorities say they were riding in Petrone's Black 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup.

They were headed to Imbo's home in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. No one knows if they ever made it there.

The FBI says an extensive investigation to date has generated some promising leads, however, neither they nor the vehicle have ever been located.
