Family members are hoping Facebook will help find answers in their son's disappearance eight years after he went missing.

Anthony Luzio Jr. was last seen on July 4, 2005, after leaving a party. He never made it home.

"I just want to know what has happened to him," said Carla Luzio, Anthony's mother.

It's an answer she fears that she may never get.

Anthony was last seen leaving a party at a friend's home near Rutherford Road and Sawmill Parkway, less than a mile from his home in Powell.

His parents remember the day like it was yesterday. They called his cell phone looking for him but were unsuccessful.

Later that day, his father Tony says he received a call from a friend who told him that his son's cell phone was at the home, but his son and his car were gone.

 An exhaustive multi-jurisdictional search turned up nothing.

To this day, the Luzio's say they know nothing more than they did on the day he disappeared.

They're now hoping social media will help in finding answers.

Dozens of family members and friends have changed their Facebook profile pictures to Anthony's missing Crimestopper's picture.

"That has really helped in bringing attention to what has happened to our son, not only in central Ohio, but around the United States," his mother said.

They're hoping to jog a memory that will help solve their son's disappearance and bring closure to their gut-wrenching questions.

"If they have anything, anything at all that will help us bring our boy home," said Tony Luzio.

Anyone with information is asked to call Central Ohio Crime-Stoppers at 614-461-TIPS.
