Episode 110: Tony Parsons

This week Emma brings us the story of Tony Parsons, a 63-year-old Father and Grandfather who was killed in September 2017.
We hear how, as a keen cyclist and cancer survivor, Tony had decided to complete a charity cycle of 104 miles. It was whilst on this cycle that Tony would go missing.
Emma describes the years long search for Tony, which included initial mountain rescue, air support and dog units as well as later periodic appeals, including a feature on Crimewatch.
We hear how an anonymous tip led to the identification of persons of interest in Tony's disappearance, and how the quick thinking of a confidante of one of these individuals would lead to the breaking of the case.
