Anthony and Suzette Cirigliano, both 51, and their sons Brandon, 19, and Noah, 15, went missing on Oct. 16 after Anthony Cirigliano called 911 asking for protection.

“It is related to Sept. 11 and people want to erase me from the face of the Earth,” he told a dispatcher. “I am not crazy.”

The family left behind Suzette Cirigliano’s mother, who has dementia and needs full-time care. She was found walking around the neighborhood around 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. She is now in the care of other family members.
