FREMONT, Mich. – Police in West Michigan are looking for a missing family of four who was last contacted on Sunday.

The Cirigliano family is from Fremont, which is in Newaygo County, north of Grand Rapids. The Fremont Police Department put out an alert for the missing family on Wednesday night.

Police said the Cirigliano Family is “very concerned” about their missing family members Anthony (Tony), 51, Suzette, 51, Brandon, 19, and Noah, 15. “They were found to have unexpectedly left their home in Fremont, Michigan and are believed to be in a silver colored 2005 Toyota Sienna mini-van with Michigan registration,” police said.

Police said other family last had contact with them on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022. Since then, their phone has been turned off and they have not reached out to family or friends. They left family pets and a family member who requires full-time care, unattended.

Michigan State Police said, according to family members, Tony was exhibiting “paranoid” behaviors on Sunday.

Tony’s brother, Paul Cirigliano, told Local 4 it’s unlike them to be out of touch.

“They usually wouldn’t even go so far as like Walmart without letting somebody know, so it’s very unlike them,” said Paul Cirigliano. “It’s certainly not an abrupt vacation by any means.”

Paul Cirigliano found the 911 call made by his brother concerning.

“We think maybe he might be having mental health sort of issue, and maybe he’s scared of something, but we definitely just want to let him know there’s nothing to be scared of, and he can reach out to him, and we’ll help him,” Paul Cirigliano said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fremont Police Department at 231-924-2400 or 911. The photo of what the van looks like is posted below:
