NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Andy Silvagni, the Gov. Livingston High School varsity girls basketball coach and New Providence resident who had been missing since Friday, has returned to his home.
Silvagni returned to his family's home on Wednesday morning, several days after his family had filed a missing persons report. Silvagni coached the team in a game last Thursday, but was missing from practice on Friday and from the team's games on Saturday and Tuesday night.
According to New Providence police, Silvagni returned home on his own. Authorities were not involved at all in his return.
The police now consider this a closed case, and no other investigation will be conducted.
"Today the reported missing person Andrew Silvagni has been located without incident and has been removed from all missing persons data bases," said New Providence Police Capt. Wayne Maurer in a statement on Wednesday.
Gov. Livingston Athletic Director Anne Clifton has referred all questions on the matter to the Berkeley Heights Schools Superintendent's office on Wednesday. The Alternative Press has`left messages with representatives of the Superintendent's office, which has not come forward with an official comment yet.
In addition to his role with the Gov. Livingston girls' basketball program, Silvagni also has ties to the New Providence High School sports programs. He serves as the Pioneer football team’s defensive coordinator, as well as the school’s JV baseball coach.
