Our thoughts are with the family and friends of missing Isle of Wight teenager, Damien Nettles, today on what would have been his 39th birthday. Ed
Today (21st June) is Damien Nettles’ birthday, please keep his family in your thoughts.
Damien Richard Nettles was born at 1.27am on 21 June 1980 at Gleneagles hospital in Singapore, weighing 7lb 10oz.
He had an idyllic childhood surrounded by the love of his family and friends on the Isle of Wight.
A talented musician with a flair for writing, he was in a band with friends and was well liked among his peer group. He had excelled with his GCSEs which gave him more enthusiasm to fulfil his ambition of becoming a marine biologist.
Sadly, on 2 November 1996 only months after his 16th birthday, Damien disappeared, leaving his family devastated.
A mishandled investigation further hindered by rumours has resulted in the case never being solved.
