    I don't know how I haven't heard about this, but I just saw it on the news. The interview with his daughter about her missing dad broke my heart :(.

    This is sad...they don't bring this case up on the news here in the philly area......not that I have seen since the report of the car found.

    It doesn't look good due to his diabetes. Sad....

    The Red Lion Shopping Plaza is very close to his house. I wonder if anyone checked the surveillance videos there, especially Best Buys and Staples.

    Is it odd for the car to get torched three days after whatever happened?

    When was Vito reported missing? From what I'm reading, sunday dec 14 about 6 pm?

    Also when was he last seen? at the restaurant around 6pm or on Castor ave around 8pm?

    The car looked pretty toasted, could they determine if the keys were in it?

    When /where was his last cell phone call or ping?

    Could they tell if his phone was in the burnt car?

    This might not seem relevant, but I'm wondering if Vito was the type of person that liked to collect things especially free stuff?
    If he was a picker, the dumpster at the red lion staples is a hotspot and there are a few other good ones there as well.
    Unfortunately, I didn't see any cameras back there.

    This is looking like the shane montgomery case because of the lack of clues, no apparent reason to disappear, popular, nice guy, the oddity of the few existing clues and the likelihood of an unfortunate conclusion.

    This may be coincidence, but there is another missing man in Philadelphia
    http://thelostnmissing.blogspot.com/2015/01/endangered-missing-howard-siegel-64.html

    they said maybe there was a conflict at home, but he is a few days out now.

    This is what I find odd --

    Maglio
    69
    missing on a saturday
    Yukon (suv)

    Siegel
    64
    Missing on a saturday
    Ford Explorer (suv)

    It appears that they live 2.8 miles apart. Is that odd, or am I just reading too much into it?

    I don't know if they are related or not, but their general profiles are very similar. I would wonder if they have any common hobbies or favorite spots they may visit frequently.
    I've noticed lately there seem to be a lot of missing people, particularly men, in Pennsylvania. Like an epidemic.

    I agree 3 days later and the car gets torched.. I would think kids would torch it right away. I have to check the weather for the days before. perhaps he was alive up until the car got torched , Maybe they were trying to get money out of him? With diabetes he could have been ok for a little while without meds, then when it became clear that wasn't going to happen he was disposed of?? I'm just thinking out loud here. But SOMEONE had to have seen the suv. It's like we all need re education on paying attention to the people and thing that are happening around us.. I pray this family gets justice, he sounds like a wonderful man.
