    Law enforcement authorities aren’t giving up in their search for a southern New Jersey woman and her boyfriend who disappeared without a trace nine years ago.

    The FBI in Philadelphia says it plans to put up a digital billboard featuring a photo of Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo in hopes someone can provide clues to their disappearance.

    Imbo, of Mount Laurel, and Petrone, who lived in Philadelphia, were last seen leaving a bar on Philadelphia’s South Street on Feb. 19, 2005. Petrone’s Dodge Dakota pickup truck was never found and the couple’s cellphones, bank accounts and credit cards weren’t used after their disappearance.

    The Philadelphia Daily News reports a $50,000 reward is being offered for information about the couple’s whereabouts.
