“We, as a family, are looking for a Christmas miracle. I would like someone with great compassion and courage to come forward with any information you have on the disappearance of my son, Tony Walsh,” says Susan in the video. “Tony is a son, brother, father, uncle and friend to many and we all miss him dearly. Tony’s daughter is looking to have her dad come home for Christmas and cook her supper. That’s all she’s asking for.”

Tony was reported missing on August 28, 2019. On​ the morning and afternoon of Friday, August 23, 2019, Tony is known to have driven​ to various locations including Millbrook, Truro and​ Debert.​ It was reported that he was last seen getting into a truck in the Truro area.​ His vehicle, a beige 1999 Chrysler Sebring, was later found in a business parking lot in downtown Truro.​

Tony is 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds. He has several tattoos, including a diamond under his right eye. He was last seen wearing brown work pants (possibly Carhartt brand), a white t-shirt with black lettering and brown work boots.​

“We​ know that​ someone out there knows something about Tony’s disappearance and we want them to see this video,” says Cpl. Jennifer Clarke of the Nova Scotia RCMP. “Please consider sharing the video to all your social media platforms so it reaches the people who have that crucial information.”
