The Boy Who Disappeared Summary

The Boy Who Disappeared by Valerie Nettles

I opened my mouth and it came. It wasn't a cry, or even a sob. It came from deep in my soul... It was the sound of a mother helpless to save her child from danger. I asked the same unanswered questions over and again. Where was he? Where was my Damien? On 2 November 1996, sixteen-year-old Damien Nettles went out for the evening in his home town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight. CCTV recorded him in a chip shop at 23:40 and on the High Street just after midnight. He has never been seen since. His mother, Valerie, has spent over two decades desperately trying to find out what happened to her son. Arrests have been made, and suspects released without charge. Despite years of research by journalists and a private investigator, Damien's vanishing remains a mystery. In this hugely moving and compelling account, Valerie Nettles tells the full, perplexing story of her son's disappearance. Someone must know what happened to Damien. Will the truth ever emerge from the shadows?

About Valerie Nettles

Valerie Nettles was born in the UK and grew up in the Isle of Wight before her family immigrated to the US when she was fifteen. She married her American husband, Ed, a manager with an international freight company, after meeting him at University of New Orleans. They would go on to have four children, including Damien, who was born in Singapore in 1980. The family lived between the UK and the US, following Ed's work, but settled in the Isle of Wight in 1990 to raise their four children. Five years after Damien's disappearance, due to job commitments, the family made the heart-wrenching decision to move. Valerie and Ed returned to the US, and currently live in Texas.
