Walsh was raised in Auburn, New York, where he attended University of Buffalo. As he married his wife Reve Walsh in 1971, the couple moved to Florida where John based his work of building luxury hotels. John’s life changed drastically as the couple’s first child, six years old Adam was abducted and disgracefully murdered in 1981 seventeen days after his abduction. After that, the Walsh family founded the non-profit organization “Adam Walsh Child Resource Center” which advocated for legislative reform and many other political campaigns, such that the “Missing Children’s Act of 1982” and “Missing Children’s Assistance Act of 1984” were added to legislature. Eventually, this traumatic experience made Walsh to raise his voice against crime and criminals which led him to television.
As John took his story and activism to television, he shared his story via NBC television film entitled “Adam” and later, its sequel “Adam: His Song Continues”. Eventually, John signed a deal with Fox where his legendary show “America’s Most Wanted”(1988-2013) aired and made him a household name in USA. John took his enthusiasm to the next level with many other programs and has helped many families victimized by similar crimes that his family went through. After his son’s murder case closed in 2008 and a late serial killer Ottis Toole was pinned for the crime, John did not stop his voices. Currently, as he serves as the host of “The Hunt with John Walsh”(2014-present), his career as a television personality and crime investigator is in full swing.
