Police renew plea for help in search for Cockeysville man missing a year

January 17, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

It was just over a year ago that Thomas G. Demyon, a 47-year-old inveterate gambler, drove away from his Cockeysville home and vanished.

Stymied in their search for Demyon, Baltimore County police yesterday renewed their plea for anyone with information about Demyon's fate to call investigators at 410-887-2198.

Demyon, a businessman, often gambled in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and at horse racetracks, said police, who think he owed several gambling debts.

Demyon is described as white, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 230 pounds, with receding blond hair and blue eyes.

He left his late father's condominium at 6: 15 p.m. Jan. 13 last year to use the telephone at a motel because the home phone had been disconnected.

Demyon's wife, Cynthia, who lives in West Virginia, told police he left to answer a page from his lawyer. The lawyer, John A. Austin of Towson, told police he did not page Demyon but found a message from the man on his recorder the next day.

Demyon's car was found Feb. 20 in the 1800 block of N. Calvert St., but police said they found no evidence of foul play.
