Officers renew plea for details one month before reward offer is closed
8:00am Monday 4th March 2013 in News
POLICE hunting for missing teenager Damien Nettles said today that some of the suspects may have died.
The news comes exactly one month before the offer of a £20,000 reward for information into the teenager’s death is closed.
Superintendent David Powell from Hampshire Police renewed his plea for details as he confirmed that some of the suspects in the disappearance of the 16-year-old from the Isle of Wight have since died.
Damien went missing 16 years ago, following a night out with friends in Cowes on November 2, 1996.
Officers said that they are still keeping an “open mind” about what happened, refusing to rule out anything.
Supt Powell said: “There are various theories and lots of information about who might have been involved in Damien's disappearance.
“Some of that information relates to people who are now dead. We maintain an open mind about the involvement of these people.”
