ON THE 17th anniversary of the disappearance of Damien Nettles, Isle of Wight police have renewed their appeal for information.
None of the information passed to police as a result of an anonymous businessman's recent £10,000 reward offer, led to new evidence or credible lines of enquiry, a spokesman said.
The 16-year-old from Gurnard — described as white, six foot three inches tall, of slim build, with short brown hair shaved at the back, brown eyes and wearing a black fleece, dark blue jeans and black boots — was reported missing after a night out in Cowes on Saturday, November 2, 1996.
