Damien Nettles: Volunteers needed to help the Dig for Damien

Can you spare a couple of hours once a month to help in the search for the remains of missing Isle of Wight teenager, Damien Nettles?

Damien Nettles

Damien Nettles went missing at the age of 16 in mysterious circumstances on 2 November 1996. He has never been found.

For the last four years, a small group of people, have been digging at a site on the Isle of Wight searching for Damien’s remains. It’s been back-breaking work for them, but they’ve persisted, despite illness and difficult circumstances.

The team believe they are close to finding Damien’s remains but desperately need help.

Valerie Nettles: “We need willing hands”
Damien’s mother, Valerie, said,

“We have an area where we need to finish excavation, but it’s slow going and hard work.

“More hands on deck would make things go much quicker. We need willing hands.

“If you can spare an hour or two then please contact Team Damien.”

Only needed once a month
Those involved with the dig are hoping to organise four teams, so each of them only have to dig one Sunday in a month.
