A 38-year-old man from Ryde, arrested on suspicion of murdering missing teenager Damien Nettles has today (Sunday) been released from police bail with no further action.
The man who was unable to answer his bail appointment last Thursday, was questioned further by detectives who found there was insufficient evidence to charge him with a criminal offence.
Earlier this week, two people arrested on suspicion of being involved in the possible murder of missing teenager Damien Nettles on the Isle of Wight were released from bail with no further action on Thursday, June 7, 2012.
A 36-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man from Cowes, answered police bail and were questioned further by detectives from the Hampshire Major Investigation Team (HMIT).
Senior investigating officer Supt Dave Powell said: “Our work to find out exactly what happened to Damien Nettles will be continuing.
“Although we have not charged anyone with a criminal offence, it has been exceptionally important to investigate information passed to us by the local community, which led to these arrests.
“Murder cannot be ruled out at this time because such a wide range on information has been received about Damien’s disappearance since 1996.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Nettles family for their understanding and support throughout this investigation. Detectives have updated the family this week on the latest decisions in this case.
“Hampshire Constabulary also appreciates the considerable co-operation and assistance of partner agencies, charities, businesses, the media and the public in maintaining awareness and encouraging new tangible leads.”
