Police following up new leads in cold case disappearance

After an appeal for information into the disappearance of a Hamilton man 30 years ago, police say they’re working with some new leads.

It was 30 years to the day yesterday, that David Nixon was last seen by a family member on the corner of King St West and James Street North.

He said he was running late to meet someone and was never heard from again.

Last week police made a public appeal for information on the three-decade old case. Detective David Brady says it was in part to try and bring closure to a pair of elderly parents.

Brady says they received some calls with some new information that detectives will be following up on with the hopes that something will shed some light on the cold case.

Nixon was 24 when he disappeared, and would be 53 years old today. He’s white, 5’10″ and at the time of his disappearance was 150 pounds with a medium build with light brown, short curly hair and blue eyes.
