I was thinking of the tragedy of this case just recently. Anniversaries are excruciating and it is small comfort to families that others know what they are experiencing right now. My family doesn’t know the words either, that would help assuage ambiguous grief but we understand...
Damien Nettles was last seen in the Cowes area of the Isle of Wight on November 2nd, 1996.
Damien was 16 years old when he was last seen. He was described as 6'3 tall, slim build with brown hair shaved at the back and brown eyes.
