Police say 17-year-old Anthony Delconte vanished from his Colonial Heights home.He was last seen on Old Town Drive around 3:00pm Wednesday.

Sitting at their kitchen table, overcome with emotion Anthony Delconte's parents desperately wait for the answer to a question plaguing their family these last few days...

Where is their 17 year-old son?

"That is what I'm thinking, I can't help it but I am because this is not like him. All I can think of is that he might be hurt," Rebecca Delconte said.

Like normal, Anthony was getting ready for his shift at Swift Creek Mill Theatre on Wednesday around 3:00pm.

Hours before, he and his mother had gone to run errands, including making a doctors visit. His sister Sarah told us her brother left out of the back door, leaving behind his cell phone and most of his belongings.

The recent High School graduate hasn't been seen or heard from since.

"He literally just walked out the door when he wasn't there, when it was time to go to work they said well maybe he walked to work a few hours later when they called they were like he is not here," Sarah Delconte said.

Now the family all sit near the phone and wait. Every time it rings, the Delconte's hope the answer to their burning question is on the other end of the phone line.

"That's all we want is just let us know you are okay, that's all I care about, I don't care if you are in California just let me know that you are okay," George Delconte said.
