    Details of Disappearance

    Dilorenzo was aboard a fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean near Santa Cruz County, California on February 10, 1996. He was fishing with four friends near Greyhound Rock when a series of large waves flipped their boat over, throwing all the passengers into the sea. Dilorenzo couldn't swim and surfers who assisted with the rescue efforts saw him slip beneath the water. All the passengers were rescued with the exception of Dilorenzo. Authorities believe he drowned.
