Online channel BBC Three has launched a new series today which investigates the real-life disappearance of Damien Nettles, who was 16 when he went missing from the town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight in 1996. Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared, will look into a number of unanswered questions about Damien’s disappearance and aims to unearth new information.

One of Damien’s childhood friends, musician Alex Roberts, has released the single “Someone Knows (A Song for Damien)” which is used in the series. The single is available to download, with a donation from each single going to the charity. The song takes a look back at the friends’ relationship growing up.

Jo Youle, Chief Executive of Missing People said “Around the country there are thousands of families, like Damien’s, who are waiting, desperate for news of their missing loved one. We hope that Unsolved will shed some new light on Damien’s disappearance and end the limbo for his family, who have never given up trying to find out what happened on the night he went missing”.
