Michigan family of 4 who went missing for a week have been found
A family of four who « unexpectedly left their home » in Fremont, Michigan, and went missing for nearly a week, were located by authorities on Sunday.
Anthony Cirigliano, 51, and Suzette Cirigliano, 51, along with their two sons Brandon, 19, and Noah, 15, both with autism, were found in Wisconsin, Fremont police said.
The family had been without news since October 16, and the couple and their sons were last seen Monday at a gas station nearly five hours north of their home. Surveillance footage showed the family « buying fuel and food », police said earlier.
Fremont Police Chief Tim Rodwell said Friday the family left Suzette’s mother home alone. She was later found by a neighbor and is now being cared for by other family members, Rodwell said.
Fermont police also received a call from the father, Anthony Cirigliano, who raised concerns for the well-being of the family.
In the recording of the 911 call obtained by CNN, made just after midnight Oct. 16, Cirigliano said he needed someone from the Fremont Police Department immediately.
« I need police protection immediately, » Cirigliano can be heard telling the 911 operator. It’s related to 9/11, and people want to wipe me off the face of the earth.
When asked by the 911 operator if he had any weapons, Cirigliano replied that he did not and added that everyone was fine.
