Search for Damien Nettles continues, 19 years on

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 15:18

A CANDLELIT vigil will be held tonight (Monday) to mark 19 years since the disappearance of Isle of Wight teenager Damien Nettles.
Damien was last seen in Cowes on November 2, 1996, then aged 16, though his family have never given up the search for him.
Hampshire Constabulary said the case to find Damien was still open.
CCTV captured him in Yorkie's fish and chip shop, off Cowes High Street, at 11.35pm on November 2, 1996, and other footage identified by his family showed him walking to a bus stop.
When he went missing, Damien was described as white, of slim build, around 6ft 3ins tall, with short brown hair and brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a black fleece jacket, dark blue jeans and black boots.
In 2011, eight people were arrested by police but later released with no further action.
A £20,000 reward was put forward by Hampshire Constabulary in 2012 for facts leading to the location of Damien's body.
Thirty reports of information came forward but there were no new lines of enquiry.
In 2013, police decided to keep the file open for ongoing checks.
Anyone with new facts about Damien's disappearance can contact police by phoning 101 or emailing [email protected]
Mini-com users can phone 18001 101.
Information can be given anonymously by phoning the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
The vigil will be held at The Green, Cowes, at 7.30pm.
