On November 2 it will be 23 years since Island teenager Damien Nettles mysteriously disappeared after a night out in his home town of Cowes. He was captured on CCTV in a chip shop and again a little later on the High Street just after midnight. He has not been seen since and the fate of Damien remains a mystery.
His mother Valerie Nettles has now written an account of the impact the loss her son has had on her and those who loved him, and her views on how the investigation, which has been widely criticised, was carried out. The book will be released from September 5.
