$10K Reward for Brother Missing in San Diego Double Murder Mystery

Gianni Belvedere, 24, was last seen the night of Dec. 23 near the area where his brother and fiance were shot just hours later.

Investigators with the San Diego Police Department Missing Persons Unit continue to look for information that will lead to locating Gianni Belvedere, missing since his brother and fiance where murdered in San Diego just before Christmas.

Belvedere, 24, was last seen about 10 p.m. Dec. 23 in the area of Mission Valley
and Friars Road in San Diego, according to authorities. A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading detectives to his whereabouts.

Belvedere is white, 6' 1'' tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Authorities say his hair grows fast and his appearance may have changed since he was last seen. 

He may be driving a green 2004 Toyota Camry with Utah license plates  B154V2.

His brother, Salvatore Belvedere, and his fiance, Ilona Flint, both 22, were shot in their car in the Westfield Mission Valley Mall parking lot about 1:15 a.m. Christmas Eve. The pair had been holiday shopping during extended, late-night hours.

Flint, shot in the head, was able to place a 911 call before she died. Salvatore Belvedere, who also sustained a head wound in the shooting, died Dec. 26 in a hospital.

The brothers and Flint are from the Provo, Utah, where police are also involved in the investigation. The three have relatives there and went to high school together.

"(Gianni) does have ties to the Provo area," Provo Police Department Lt. Mathew Siufanua said in a KSL.com news report by Sam Penrod. "He has friends, family he could reach out to and so it makes sense for them to give us a call to assist them in that effort."

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact authorities. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
