Authorities in west Michigan are searching for a family of four after a call to police Sunday from a father who “accidentally left his home” in Fremont raised concerns about the family’s welfare.

Anthony Cirigliano, 51, and Suzette Cirigliano, 51, are missing, along with their two sons, Brandon, 19, and Noah, 15, who both have autism, according to Fremont Police Chief Tim Rodwell.

The couple and their son were last seen Monday at a gas station nearly five hours north of their home. according to Fremont Police.

“Surveillance video from the BP Gas Station in Gulliver shows Anthony, Suzette, Brandon and Noah purchasing fuel and food at the station,” Fremont Police said in a news release Friday.

Family members have not heard from the four since Sunday, according to a police Facebook post.

The family also left Suzette’s mother alone at home. She was later found by a neighbor and is now being cared for by other family members, Rodwell said.

The family is believed to be traveling in a silver 2005 Toyota Sienna minivan with Michigan registration, police said.

Rodwell told CNN affiliate WXMI that police who responded to Anthony Cirigliano’s 911 call for police protection on Sunday were concerned about his mental health.

“My officers were concerned about everyone’s well-being and spent about an hour talking to everyone and making sure they were OK, and whether Tony was going through a mental issue that would be dangerous,” Rodwell told WXMI.

Fremont Police have released a recording of the 911 call made just after midnight on October 16th. In it, Cirigliano said he needed protection, it was related to “9/11” and people want to wipe me off the face of the Earth.

Authorities in the Upper Peninsula and the east of the state have been informed of the disappearance, according to the police.
