Who is Troy Cook

Troy is the oldest child of Tom and Lorraine Cook. He was born on July 16, 1978. He has brown eyes, black hair, he weighs 120 pounds and is 5’7″ tall at the time of his disappearance.

He was last seen in Truro, Nova Scotia by his father on June 12, 1998. It is believed that Troy made a phone call from a pay phone near the Tim Hortons in Bible Hill. Troy has not been seen since this time.

He loved his social life, got his license when he was 16 and loved meeting girls. If he saw a girl he wanted to talk to, he didn’t care who she was with, he would sit down and talk to her. He also enjoyed hanging out with friends. After he turned 19 he began frequenting a local bar called Chevy’s.

Troy, his parents, and his brother, Mike, who was 12 when his older brother disappeared, were very close and enjoyed spending time together. Troy loved to swim, and camp and ride his motorbike. Tom bought him his first motorbike when he was just 5 years old.

Troy worked at the Atlantic Superstore in Truro throughout high school and once he graduated, they hired him full time. Once he was earning a regular pay cheque he decided to move into a 2 bedroom flat on Willow Street in Truro, only a 5 minute walk from work. His roommate was a coworker from the Superstore. He had only been living there for about 3 weeks when he disappeared.

On Friday, June 12, 1998, Troy’s family went to the restaurant where they were all supposed to meet, but he wasn’t there. They waited 15 minutes before calling his work and some friends. No one had seen him so Tom went to the RCMP as that who has jurisdiction in their community. However, Troy went missing from Truro, so Tom had to file the missing persons report with the Truro police.
