Details of Disappearance

DiSilvestro was last seen at a friend's home in the 200 block of Ross Avenue in Hamilton, Ohio on February 7, 2011. He tried to call his mother and his grandmother at 2:30 a.m., but neither answered and he did not leave a message. He may have been planning to ask them for a ride. He then left the house between 3:00 and 6:00 a.m., and never returned.

He may have been on the way to his grandmother's house, which was two miles away. The most logical route he would have taken in that case would have been through a forested area known as Millikin Woods. He never arrived at his grandmother's and has never been heard from again.

DiSilvestro's family reported him missing on February 11. He lived on McWhorter Drive at the time of his disappearance. He has dropped out of sight before for a few days at a time, but never for this long. He left his cellular phone at the Ross Avenue residence he disappeared from, and he didn't have his medication or any money.

Little information is available as to DiSilvestro's fate, but his family believes he's deceased.
