The Search For Andrew Gosden
In the first few months after Andrew’s disappearance, Andrew's dad and Glenys his mum took it in turns to visit London, postering, leafleting, covering museums, stations, pizza restaurants, all the refuges they could find, anywhere they could think of. Last year Andrews parents appeared on daytime talk shows, TV and radio news programmes (both regional and national), Comic Relief and Missing Live, among others. Andrew’s photo appeared on electronic screens in hospitals and GPs’ surgeries, and on milk cartons, bus shelters, rubbish vans.
Andrew is described as slim build, 5'3 tall with brown straight hair and brown eyes, at the time he went missing, but please bear in mind his appreance has likely changed from the photo on the top right of this page. Andrew was planning on growing his hair long and dying it black, but he is just as likely to have shaved it off and changed his style.
Andrew does need glasses or contact lenses, and is into the heavy metal goth scene; bands like Evanescence, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Marilyn Manson and Muse (who he saw in concert with his dad). Andrew is familiar with many of the London Tourist attractions. He is also academically gifted and was always interested in museums of of all types. Subjects such as Mathematics, sciences, history and philosophy particularly interested him.
Despite TV and radio appeals, poster and e-mail campaigns, Andrew Gosden is still missing, his reasons for leaving are completely unknown.
There is concern for Andrew's safety as he has never gone missing before and this is totally out of character.Can you help find him?
