Two people arrested on suspicion of being involved in the murder of missing Isle of Wight teenager Damien Nettles will face no further action.

Damien was last seen in West Cowes on 2 November 1996 when he was 16.

A woman, 36, and a man, 45, both from Cowes, were released from bail as there was insufficient evidence to charge them, a police spokesman said.

A man, 38, from Ryde, Isle of Wight, who was not able to answer his police bail, will be questioned further.

Officers will arrange a new appointment for him in due course, police said.

Four other men arrested last year were released without charge in February.

Damien had lived with his family in Woodvale Road, Gurnard, but his mother moved to Texas after her husband had to move there for work.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Hampshire Constabulary.
