Damien Nettles: Friend releases Missing People charity single

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 9:56

A FRIEND of Damien Nettles has released a song he hopes will help the families of missing people.
Isle of Wight musician Alex Roberts' single Someone Knows (a Song for Damien) has been featured in the new documentary Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared, which launched on BBC Three yesterday (Monday).
Alex said: "I’ve written several songs for and about Damien over the years, it is my therapy, but this one nailed it for me. It captures his spirit, our friendship, and the sorrow of that being lost.
"Damien’s mother Valerie suggested the charity, and with her blessing it is now on general release as a charity single with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Missing People."
Missing People has worked with the Nettles family since Damien disappeared almost 20 years ago, aged 16.
Alex said: "Missing People is a charity which provides vital help to families in similar situations to that of the Nettles family. Estimates are that a staggering 140,000 people under the age of 18 go missing each year.
"Buying this single will help to bring some of them home, and further the search for answers about Damien."
Missing People head of campaigns Clare Cook said: "We’re very grateful to Alex for supporting the charity and encouraging others to do the same by downloading his song for Damien. We all hope that the new series will finally help to find the answers that the Nettles’ family so desperately need."
