"He would always communicate where he's gonna be at....then, yeah he'd return home at a decent time," said Anthony's father, Mark.

According to Anthony's father, he was picked up by Brendan around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to let out dogs at his mother's house.

Anthony's mother says she spoke to him on Tuesday morning but reached out via text asking about taking care of the dogs. She never heard back.

McCall's girlfriend Katelin Brown said she didn't know Brendan Hurley, but she had heard Anthony mention him.

"I know that he's doing everything he can to come home," she said. "If anybody knows where he is, please let him come home."

Anthony's mother told ABC11 he met Hurley while working at Stewart's Bistro in Wake Forest but neither worked there anymore.

Raleigh police have released little information about the case so it's unclear what the motive was.

The bodies of McCall and Hurley have not been found.
