The Missing Anwar Green

The Missing
Anwar Green
Case #: 01006569
Essex County

   Anwar Green was 19 years old when he was last seen with his friend Rahim Martin on January 19, 2001 in Newark, NJ. He and Rahim were seen on surveillance cameras at Independence Community Bank at the corner of Broad Street and Academy Street. The two men had planned to cash a check from a civil lawsuit. On footage, it appears Anwar is nervous as he keeps glancing towards the door. Rahim cashed the check for over $8,000. There was also another $4,000 check that had been issued but it was never cashed.
Martin and Green left the bank and went next door to the Prudential Building on Broad Street. Martin had once worked there as a guard for a private security firm. In the lobby, Martin called his uncle from a pay phone and they talked briefly. The uncle worked at the building but the two young men left without seeing him in person.
Neither Martin nor Green had drivers licenses at the time they disappeared. They asked others to drive them places. Anwar has not used his credit card since his disappearance and he left his cell phone behind. He is a Black male, 5’08”,148 lbs, brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a brown coat with a fur collar, blue jeans and brown Timberland boots. He was also wearing a gold necklace with a diamond cross pendant. Anwar has a chipped front tooth, and his nickname is “Head.” Anwar was very close with his family and it was uncharacteristic of them both to leave without warning. It is theorized that the men were robbed and murdered because of the large amount of money they were carrying. 
The day after the two were reported missing, a man’s body was found in a burned house in Newark. It was determined that he had been murdered and the house was intentionally set on fire. The victim was identified as Rahim Martin in August of 2010, but there was no sign of Anwar. Foul play is suspected in his case due to the circumstances.

The Missing Amanda Carroll

The Missing
Amanda Rae Carroll
Case #: 00-516
Hunterdon County

   Amanda Carroll was 20 years old when she went missing on May 1, 2000, from Flemington New Jersey. She rented a home on Greenwood Place with her husband, Matthew Carroll, and their two daughters. 
During the early morning hours of May 1, Amanda chatted online with a friend from Texas about her plans to take her children and move back to Arizona where she was born, to live with her father after her divorce was finalized. She seemed upbeat and looking forward to the move. 
At 6:30 am, Amanda spoke to a Canadian friend on the phone. After this phone call, she has never been heard from again. 
Matthew, her husband, a captain in the Marine corps, was the one to report her missing. He and their two young daughters were visiting his parents in New York on the last day Amanda was heard from. 
Amanda married Matthew when she was just 16 years old. The relationship seemed happy until the family moved to New Jersey six months before her disappearance. Amanda had become depressed and decided to seek a divorce. 
Of note, it turns out that the police were called to the Carroll residence two days before Amanda disappeared due to a domestic dispute, but no violence occurred and no charges were filed.
Matthew has stated he believes she left of her own accord, possibly with someone she met on the internet. The police investigated all of Amanda’s internet acquaintances, but have cleared all of them of any involvement. 
Amanda’s bank account and social security number have had no activity since the first day of May, 21 long years ago. 
Amanda was last seen wearing a white t-shirt with jeans and gold rings on her fingers. She is Caucasian with red hair, hazel eyes, 5’6”, 145 lbs. She has a tattoo of a sun and moon on her right ankle, a floral pattern tattoo on the back of her neck, and she has pierced ears. 
Police do not think this is an act of random foul play. Matthew was considered a key suspect in the case, but there was not enough evidence to charge him with anything.
Amanda’s father has since passed away, and her two daughters are living in Pennsylvania, hoping one day for answers.

The Missing Robin Trivisonno

The Missing
Robin D. Trivisonno
Case #: 97-1485
County: Monmouth

Robin D. Trivisonno was a 28 year old mother of three living in Ventnor, New Jersey, when she went missing in January of 1997. Robin was raised in Pine Hill, NJ. In 1994, after separating from her husband, she began working as a dancer for a place called Heartbreakers on Route 35 in Neptune Township, which is about an hour from her home. Robin had been struggling to pay for her schooling and supporting her kids. At the go-go bar, Robin was known as “Toni”. The only other person that knew of her endeavors was her mother, and she had been sworn into secrecy, Robin’s mother said that Robin “hated dancing at the go-go bar with a passion.” She worked at the bar for two years, then quit to become a nurse and had been attending Atlantic Cape Community College to fulfill her ambition. However, the night she disappeared, Robin came to the bar to visit former co-workers, and stayed there for several hours talking to them. Robin had started asking around for a ride to Delilah’s Den in South Amboy, where “a friend of hers worked as a DJ.” Robin was last seen exiting Heartbreakers Go-Go Bar on January 19, 1997. (some sources say Jan 20.) She was reportedly intoxicated and left with an unidentified Caucasian male.
Robin is a white female, 5’02 inches tall, weighing 105 lbs, brown hair, hazel eyes. She was wearing a waist-length brown coat and a leather hair barrette with a wooden pin, and according to the Doe Network, she also had on 18k gold and silver earrings and a Cartier watch. She has a scar on her right eyelid. At least two of her teeth are capped. She may wear glasses, and she was wearing press-on nails at the time.

-Composite sketch of the man Robin was seen leaving with on the night of her disappearance. 

The unidentified man that Robin was seen leaving with was described by witnesses as appearing well-groomed with shoulder length, wavy, light brown hair (some sources say dark brown hair) and blue eyes. He was in his 30’s and stood at approx. 5’8-5’9”, about 180 lbs. It was also stated that the man had a tan and nice looking teeth. This man, along with Robin, have never been seen again. 
Robin’s black 1994 Jeep Cherokee was discovered abandoned in a handicap parking spot in the Heartbreaker’s parking lot the day after her disappearance. Then, four months after she went missing, 40 miles from where she was last seen, Robin’s purse, wallet (with $500 cash still inside it) and jacket were found in a wooded area behind a fence in the back of Delilah’s Den in Perth Amboy, NJ, which is where Robin was headed that night. However, no one at Delilah’s Den ended up telling police they saw her there the night she disappeared. 
After Robin’s disappearance, her three sons were raised by her estranged husband. Foul play is suspected, her family believes she is deceased. Her case is being investigated as a homicide.

The Missing Darlene DeWolff Polizzi

The Missing
Darlene DeWolff Polizzi
Case #: MP18331 (NamUs)
County: Bergen

Darlene DeWolff Polizzi was 19 years old when she went missing on Monday, April 24, 1967. She was a waitress at the Hangar Restaurant in Paramus, NJ. She was last seen at her home at the 400 block of Westminster Place in Lodi, Bergen County, New Jersey. Darlene has reddish-brown hair and brown eyes, 5’3”, and weighing only 100 pounds. She was wearing a brown blouse and a skirt with polka dots, along with a brown suede coat with a fur collar. Darlene was a regular at Tommy’s Diner on Paterson Avenue in Wallington, New Jersey.
According to her husband, (whose name I have not been able to find)  the couple were looking to move, so Darlene accompanied him to look at new apartments that day. After looking at three, they returned to their residence. At some point later, Darlene’s husband went out again, by himself, leaving his wife at home. When he returned, she was gone. She has never been heard from again. Darlene’s husband reported her missing the next day, April 25.
It was determined that Darlene had taken several clothing items with her, but she left behind the rest of her personal belongings, including her jewelry. Police did not have Darlene’s DNA until they obtained it from the last surviving sister, who passed away in 2016. 
Most of Darlene’s family members passed away, not knowing what happened to her. Her nieces are still continuing to look for their beloved “Aunt DeeDee.” 

Photo of the main suspect, Raymond Alves, a serial killer that was active in the area at the time, he was convicted of raping a teenage girl in Fair Lawn and pushing another teenage girl off a bridge in Clifton in 1976. A year later in 1967, he ended up living in Darlene’s neighborhood, and he actually worked with her husband at a sheet metal plant, and Darlene was friends with Raymond’s wife. Suspiciously, the Alves family moved away the day after Darlene disappeared. Raymond has not been officially connected to the disappearance. He eventually served 23 years of a 47 year sentence and was released in 2000. He is also suspected of the murders of 7 different teenage females whose bodies were found in Bergen County, NJ. He claims he has raped and killed more than a dozen women. 

If you have any additional information, please contact The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, Lt Carmen Martino, at 201-226-5653.

The Missing Patricia Jane Wagner

The Missing
Patricia Jane Wagner
Case #: 3981DFNJ (Doe Network)
Hudson County, New Jersey

   Patricia Jane Wagner, also known as “Patty” to her loved ones, was a 26 year old mother of two young boys when she went missing on October 20th, 1972. Patty lived in Jersey City, New Jersey in a two-family home with her mother, Marie. She asked her mother to watch her boys so she could go on a coffee date with a man named Dennis. The coffee shop in which the date was to occur, is unknown. When Patricia did not arrive home after her date and did not show up the next morning, her mother began to worry and called police. 
    Patty’s son Kenny, who was only 5 years old at the time, states he remembers begging his mother not to go out that night. He had a gut feeling that she would not be coming back home. He and his mother made plans to go to McDonald’s the next day, it was their “thing” to do together as a family, and unfortunately that special trip did not end up happening. 
 At first, the theory was that Patricia had run off to elope with Dennis, but her family insists that she loved her boys very much and would not leave them behind. Patty did not take any of her personal belongings with her when she vanished. Another reason to doubt this theory is that Patricia was a stay-at-home-mom with no income other than occasional housekeeping, so she did not have the money or the resources to run off.
Upon investigating, it turned out that Dennis had also gone missing at the time, he had a paycheck from work that he never picked up. His whereabouts between 1972-2019 remain unknown, however, Dennis was found alive in Florida in 2020. He refuses to speak about Patricia to her family. 
Patricia’s cousin, Eileen, has spent her life advocating for Patricia, hoping that one day answers will surface. She runs several Facebook groups, dedicated to finding missing people. I admire her strength and dedication, and I pray for justice and closure for Patricia’s family.

If you have any information about this case, please contact the New Jersey State Police at 609-882-2000.
