TORONTO — It's been more than a week since Canadian filmmaker Dave Walker vanished without a trace while working in Cambodia.
And the missing 58-year-old's family and friends, in the Greater Toronto Area and out west, are bracing for the worst.
"Every time the phone rings you wonder, is this it?" Tammy Wallbridge-Madden said Friday, explaining her cousin hasn't been seen since Valentine's Day and it's hard to remain optimistic.
She and her children live in Edmonton, Walker's hometown, and are his only surviving family members other than an ex-wife in Hamilton, Ont.
Wallbridge-Madden said she has little information about the mysterious disappearance half a world away.
And what she does know comes from Walker's business partner, Sonny Chhoun.
