Darren Tatlock seemed happy the day he disappeared, according to his pregnant girlfriend.

Candace Poirier-Hanrahan said Tatlock, 29, was behaving normally Nov. 9 before he left his Hudson St. home at about 10:30 a.m. to work on his resumé at the New Waterford Employment Resource Centre.

“He did everything he always does after getting up,” said Poirier-Hanrahan. “There was absolutely no clue whatsoever he wasn’t going to go up to the employment centre and do what he said he was going to do.”


Poirier-Hanrahan, who has been dating Tatlock for more than five years and is two-months pregnant, said his sudden disappearance has been hard on her and their children. The couple has a three-year-old daughter and Tatlock is very close to Poirier-Hanrahan’s seven-year-old daughter.

“They know something is wrong. They miss him and ask about him all the time, they want to know when he is coming home.

“I can’t even talk,” she said, crying softly. “I can barely sleep.”

So far, there have been few clues about Tatlock’s whereabouts.

Cape Breton Regional Police Service public relations adviser Desiree Vassallo said police viewed surveillance tape from a local store after someone reported seeing Tatlock, but it was not him.

She encouraged people to call with any information they might have.
