According to Tewksbury Police, Anthony's father dropped him off at the Wynn School in the morning. After school, Anthony called his father, Dennis McNeil, at work from his home phone and told him he planned to walk over to the Livingston Street ball fields to watch the games and that he could be picked up around 5:30 p.m.
Police say Anthony's father made several trips to the Livingston Street Fields between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. but Anthony was not there.
Anthony is described as being 5-2, 120 pounds. He has last seen wearing dark jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
Though Wilmington Police Lt. Joe Desmond said McNeil does not have any direct connection to Wilmington, he added that residents are encouraged to be on the lookout to help provide any information they can.
Desmond said the department received information that McNeil was missing late Thursday night in an e-mail from Tewksbury Police. Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis and several Wilmington officers have been called to Tewksbury to aid in the search.
