The disappearance of Tony Jones

It was November, 1982.


And 20-year-old Tony Jones was about to head off on the adventure of a lifetime.


The Perth born bloke was about to backpack across the outback of North Queensland.He’d trek from Brisbane to Townsville, out to Mount Isa, where he’d planned on meeting his brother.


But Tony Jones never made it. As his brother Mark tells us in this episode, he’s never been seen since.

So how does a person just vanish into thin air? On this episode of Investigates April Glover speaks to Mark Jones, Tony’s brother, about the disappearance, and why his family established Australian Missing Persons week.
