Caroline Manzo is asking for help in the search for a relative of her son-in-law Vito Scalia, who went missing on Saturday, January 23. "Any help would be appreciated, please retweet. This is a relative of my son-in-law @VitoScalia3," Caroline tweeted Monday.
Matthew Genovese was last seen leaving McSwiggan's Pub in Hoboken, New Jersey between 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Saturday night by three of his friends, according to the Hoboken Police Department. The 24-year-old is said to have gone out on a 10-minute walk on a familiar route to make his way home after a blizzard that hit the area earlier that day. Police said they don't know if Genovese's disappearance was related to the storm, according to NBC New York.
Anyone with information should contact the Hoboken Police Department at (201) 420-2100.
UPDATE: Matthew's body was reportedly found on Tuesday, Caroline announced on Instagram. "Thank you so much for sharing and prayers. Unfortunately this story didn't end as we had hoped. Mathews body was found earlier today. May God rest his soul and give his family the strength they need to get through this tragedy," Caroline wrote.
UPDATE 1/27/2016: The body of Matthew was found in the Hudson River Tuesday, Hoboken Police Chief Ken Ferrante confirmed at a press conference, according to NJ.com.
Matthew lived on Garden Street, 10 blocks away from where he was last seen at McSwiggan's Pub in Hoboken, but instead of heading west toward his apartment, he headed east toward the river for unclear reasons, NJ.com reports. His family reported him missing on Monday after he did not show up to his job on Wall Street. His wallet with all of his cash, credit cards, and ID were found in the snow by a police officer searching for Matthew around the waterfront location near Pier A where his body was later found. The police chief told reporters that he would not speculate about how Matthew ended up in the water, and there is an ongoing investigation with the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office.
