(ORILLIA, ON) – The Government of the Province of Ontario is offering a total reward of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the disappearance of Grant AYERST and Norman WHALLEY.

Grant AYERST and Norman WHALLEY were last seen together on September 11, 1991 leaving a Toronto area hotel and were known to have travelled to the City of Barrie. Both men have not been in contact with their families or friends since that time, and foul play is strongly suspected in their disappearance.

On Thursday June 15, 2017, Simcoe County Case Files will begin to feature videos, posted to social media, which will sequence the events which led up to the disappearance of Grant AYERST and Norman WHALLEY.

Investigators from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Barrie Police Service are urging anyone who may have information on this case, to contact the Simcoe County Case Files Hotline toll-free at 1-844-677-5030 or by email at SimcoeCountyCaseFiles@opp.ca

If you have any information and wish to remain anonymous, you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or you can submit a tip on-line to www.crimestopperssdm.com where you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2000.
