    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Anthony was getting ready for his shift at Swift Creek Mill Theatre on Wednesday around 3:00pm.

    Hours before, he and his mother had gone to run errands, including making a doctor's visit. His sister Sarah told us her brother left out of the back door, leaving behind his cell phone and most of his belongings. The recent high school graduate hasn't been seen or heard from since.

    "He literally just walked out the door. When he wasn't there, when it was time to go to work they said well, maybe he walked to work. A few hours later when they called they were like, he is not here," Sarah Delconte said.

    So do we know where his residence is? Does he live in a rural area or in town? Colonial Heights is about 2 and a half hours away from us and I've been there once, a long time ago, so I don't remember much about it. I would like to know what the area he lives in looks like and what his normal route to work is.

    Well, he was last seen leaving his house and this article says he was last seen on Old Town Drive so, putting 2 and 2 together, I'm guessing he lives on Old Town Drive.

    It looks like a residential neighborhood in town, but there's a creek running through a wooded area just west of his street, and I think this is the area that was searched over the weekend, judging by the location of the staging area for the search.

    The theater where Anthony works is about a mile and a half north of his home, on Jefferson Davis Highway.

    Police have not yet determined whether a body found in Colonial Heights is that of a missing teenager. The body was discovered in the 700 block of Old Town Drive, according to a Colonial Heights Facebook post.

    “The identity of the deceased has not been confirmed at this time,” the post indicated. “Police are working with The Office of the Medical Examiner to determine if this is the missing person reported last week.”

    Almost has to be him. Colonial Heights is a tiny area to begin with, and then a body found on the same road he purportedly went missing. Bad. Sounds like suicide. Hope not.
