damiennettlesUPDATED: An anonymous local businessman who launched a 28 day reward for information which leads to the discovery of missing Damien Nettle’s body has this week extended the deadline.

Some potentially important information in the search for Damien was provided to the family on Monday, according to Damien’s mum, Valerie. This information has been passed onto Police.

In order to try and get the final piece of the jigsaw, the deadline to claim the £10,000 reward has been extended until the 10th October, next Thursday.

The £10,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide a successful lead to the discovery of Damien, who has been missing since 1996. Anyone with information is asked to email [email protected] – emails will be monitored 24hrs a day.

UPDATE – A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary has this week said:

“We remain in contact with the businessman offering this £10,000 reward. Any information received will be checked in line   with police standards for evidence. This process will decide whether any new lines of enquiry and police action can be justified.

“We always appreciate every single sincere thought and effort to help the police in any case.

“Any search for human remains requires a substantial investment of police time, expertise and resources. Officers would need verifiable information to justify such a search.”
