Millville, Cumberland County, New Jersey
Anthony Dellomo was 47 years old when he was last seen on surveillance video walking away from a motor vehicle crash on December 29th, 2019 shortly after midnight. The vehicle Anthony was driving, a Chevy Impala, careened off to the right side of Route 55 in Millville near mile point 24.6, and slid down an embankment and into a wooded area. The car then caught fire. Police arrived on scene shortly afterwards and found no sign of the driver. A search of the woods took place until the next morning, still with no trace of the man. A few days later, Investigators gathered footage from several homes and a Wawa near the area that showed him walking west on Route 49 and Wade Boulevard, away from the crash. His sister Lisa says she is 95 percent sure it is her brother in the security videos, noting that he has a distinctive walk.
He didn’t have any money or credit cards in his possession and his cellphone has not been used since the accident. He suffers from schizophrenia and requires medication that he didn’t have with him. Anthony also had drug dependency issues and previously disappeared for 3 months before being located in a Pennsylvania hospital.
He is 5’10” and about 200 lbs. with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing his ‘76ers hat and matching sweatshirt that he received just a few days earlier on Christmas.
Lisa also said, “They call him Tony D,” recalling an incident at a church soup kitchen about a year after her brother’s disappearance when a man asked her why she had a photo of him. “I said, you know him? He said, yeah, that’s Tony D.”
There have been many reported sightings of Anthony, people had insisted they saw him at malls, stores, a park and a bus station in Vineland. Others reported seeing him in Camden and in Kensington, a neighborhood in Philadelphia. Friends and family traveled to every location, putting up flyers and visiting hospitals, even went so far as to look into homeless shelters in Millville City and Vineland, but unfortunately, none of the leads ever brought them any closer to finding him.
