Jilly Todaro Update

Search warrants that were issued by police in December are revealing new details about the search for missing Johnstown woman Jilly Todaro.

We obtained copies of the search warrants Friday.

Police say the last confirmed sighting of Todaro was by a Johnstown officer who saw her in Central Park the morning of Dec. 12.

Police were notified Dec. 16 that Todaro hadn’t been seen or heard from in several days.

Investigators searched Todaro’s Franklin Street home Dec. 23 combing for clues that could lead to information on Todaro’s whereabouts.

According to the search warrant, police seized several household items that have been sent to a state police crime lab for analysis.

Authorities say Todaro shared the home with her boyfriend Brian Giles.

Giles is currently being held in the Cambria County Prison after he was charged following a physical altercation with Todaro in their home Dec. 11.

Giles waived his preliminary hearing when he appeared in court earlier this week.

He’s accused of harassment and assault related to the physical altercation he had with Todaro.

We were there as Giles was escorted by police to the courtroom.

When we asked if he knew where Todaro was he said she was staying with a family member and said “she was alive when I went to jail.”

Giles’ wife, Nancy, disappeared in 2018 and was later found dead and buried along a Johnstown trail.

No charges have been filed in Nancy Giles’ case.

Meanwhile, in the search for Todaro, police say they also executed a search warrant on the Department of Human Services.

Investigators say Todaro’s only source of income was government assistance and they found that the last transaction Todaro had made was at the Haynes Street Sheetz Dec. 11.

Investigators say they’ve also made attempts to call Todaro’s phone, but the phone has either been turned off or the battery has died because they say all of their calls have gone straight to voicemail.

Detectives say they’ve talked to all of Todaro’s known relatives who say they haven’t seen her after Dec. 12.

According to the search warrant, she would also frequent the Soup Kitchen, Women’s Help Center, Sheetz and Camtran, but hasn’t been seen at any of those places since that Dec. morning.

Anyone with information regarding Todaro’s whereabouts should call Johnstown police.
