COLCHESTER, CT (WFSB) -- Members of a Colchester family are raising concerns after it appears a local family of five has gone missing.

The Todt family hasn’t been heard from since Jan. 6, according to a Facebook page dedicating to details surrounding the family’s disappearance.

Tony Todt owns Family Physical Therapy in Colchester. The locations had no activity at them on Monday, and an office manager said she hadn’t seen Tony in weeks.

A sign on the door at the Park Avenue location in Colchester said it would be closed until after the first of the year.

Family members said Tony, his wife Megan and their three young children had traveled from Colchester to Celebration, Florida last month.

Legal documents show Tony’s license to practice in Connecticut wasn’t renewed last September.

Shortly after Thanksgiving, a digital marketing representative visited the Colchester office to talk to Tony about his website, and was confronted by what she thought were investigators.

Local and state police said they were not asked to investigate a missing person or family as of Monday.

The U.S. Attorney’s office said it was not commenting.

Also, the Florida house they lived in was foreclosed on.

On Monday, police in Florida converged on his former home where four people were found dead inside the home. 

Officials in Florida have not released the identities of the people involved in the investigation. 

Police did say the suspect is in custody. 

Deputies made several attempts to make contact with the family inside the home throughout the weekend, but were unsuccessful until Monday. 

On Monday night, the Colchester First Selectman's Office posted a comment on social media saying, "The news reports out of Celebration, Florida regarding a Colchester family are shocking and heartbreaking. I know that the thoughts and prayers of our entire community are with the relatives and friends of the family involved."

The Colchester First Selectman did not say if this post was in regards to the Todt family.
