The Boy Who Disappeared

The Boy Who Disappeared

Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared sees reporters Alys Harte and Bronagh Munro launch a forensic and serialised investigation into a teenage boy who mysteriously vanished on the Isle of Wight twenty years ago.

In 1996, sixteen year-old Damien Nettles went missing after a night out in the small town of Cowes. Nearly two decades later, his body has never been found and no one charged. The big question remains - was Damien murdered? And if so, who was behind his death and disappearance?

In a groundbreaking online format spanning eight short episodes, Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared allows audiences to immerse themselves in this mystery. As Alys and Bronagh venture deeper into the Isle of Wight’s dark underbelly, unearthing evidence and sometimes conflicting accounts, audiences are drawn into the twists and turns of their gripping investigation.
