Damien Nettles 1996 missing teen case: £20,000 reward

A £20,000 reward has been put up by police investigating the suspected murder of a teenager who went missing on the Isle of Wight 16 years ago.

Damien Nettles has not been seen since 2 November, 1996 when the 16-year-old failed to return home following a night out with friends in Cowes.

Earlier this year, his mother, Valerie Nettles, who lives in Texas, said she believed her son might have been killed over a cannabis debt.

The police inquiry has seen eight people arrested over the course of a year but freed with no further action.
