Anthony (Tony) Jones disappeared in November 1982. Tony, from Perth, Western Australia was on a six month backpacking holiday around Australia. At the time of his disappearance Tony, then aged 20, was at the end of his holiday in North Queensland. In the three weeks leading up to his disappearance, Tony had met up with his brother Tim in both Mackay and Airlie Beach.

On 3 November 1982. Tony rang his mother and girlfriend back in Perth. They advised him that his brother Tim had travelled onto Mt Isa. Tony indicated that he would again meet up with Tim and also travel to Mt Isa by hitchhiking. This was the last known contact that anyone had with him and it is suspected by police that he has been murdered.
