As we mentioned earlier, today marks the 15th anniversary of the disappearance of Isle of Wight teenager, Damien Nettles.
Damien’s mother, Valerie, has asked us to share this message with VB readers.
“I just want to ask people who may know something to look into their conscience and look at their children and grandchildren and think about how this might make them feel if this happened to their child/grandchild.
“It is time to come forward and say what you know.” she said.
No time like the present
Valerie went on to say, “There’s no time like the present, since there would be no way to tell who said what with all the enquires going on, so no one person could be seen as a grass.
“Information could have come from any one of several sources at this time and now is the time to come forward and make a difference.”
