Sister of Island teenager Damien Nettles, who has been missing since November 1996, has launched a petition and appealing for Islanders to help.
As many readers will know, the family believe it’s highly likely that Damien was killed, but his remains have never been found.
Sarah says in the petition that back in 2011 the family received information that some of Damien’s remains lay in a shallow grave in Parkhurst Forest.
Information dismissed by Police
She said the Police dismissed the information stating the source was unreliable due to his criminal past.
More recently, however, the family were advised of the same deposition site via Paranormal means.
Sarah says, “Although my family understands that these means are not conventional, the fact that the information provided, backs up the information we received from real sources should be considered.”
According to Sarah’s petition, “Hampshire Constabulary and the Forestry Commission refuse to allow my family and friends to dig the site in Parkhurst Forest at our own time and expense. They have advised that anyone who goes to dig up the site in Parkhurst Forest will be arrested.
“This petition is crucial because my 16 year old brother’s remains (that may have been laying there for the same time as his age when he went missing) could be in the forest.”
Peace of mind
She continues, “For our family’s peace of mind, and for the sake of my brother who deserves to be found, we need to know whether or not we can check this location off of the list. We need to know if his remains are there or not. And if they are, we need to be able to finally lay him to rest.”
