WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Cortlandt man who left his home on a snowy night in a jacket and bathrobe has been missing since 1998, according to the nonprofit The Charlie Project on its website.

Frank John DiNardi went missing March 9, 1998, from Cortlandt. At the time, Dinardi was 44, 6-feet tall and weighed 165 pounds, said the report.

He is described as Caucasian, with black hair and brown eyes, and having a bushy mustache and surgical scar on his right cheek. All of his upper teeth are missing and two teeth are missing from his lower jaw, according to The Charlie Project. 

DiNardi was wearing a tan, three-quarter-length bathrobe, a tartan jacket, possibly red, green and black, no shirt, possibly a diamond stud earring in his left ear, and possibly mismatching shoes, one of them a tan sneaker and the other a brown suede shoe, the report said.

DiNardi suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a condition characterized by rapidly progressing muscle weakness, according to The Charlie Project.

ALS is a terminal illness; most people die within three to five years of its onset, noted the report.

DiNardi has never been heard from again, and few details are available in his case, according to The Charlie Project.

Any information concerning this case should be directed to New York State Police at (914) 788-8044.
