Police launch appeal for missing Andrew Gosden on 14th anniversary

Andrew Gosden was reported missing 14 years ago and his family have been doing all they can to find out the truth.

South Yorkshire Police have launched a fresh appeal on the 14th anniversary of his disappearance in a bid to find out where he is now.

The Doncaster boy was 14 when he went missing in September 2007, which would make him 28 today.

He was reportedly last seen boarding a train to London Kings Cross.

No confirmed sightings or information has been verified by the police since.

SYP have released several age-progression photographs that may help the public identify Andrew.

He has a unique right ear that sets him apart from the crowd.

Andrew is also deaf in his left ear and has poor eyesight which led to him wearing glasses or contact lenses.

Detective Inspector Andy Knowles has been leading the investigation since 2017.

He said: “My main aim is to encourage anyone who might know Andrew to contact police.

“By providing details about his appearance we are hoping to spark a conversation between friends or people that might know him as the 28-year-old man he is today.

“Does someone you know have gaps in their life history?

“Do you know someone with this distinctive double ridge on his right ear?

“Is there someone in your life, your street, or your community that might be Andrew?”

DI Knowles added: “Time does not lessen the pain for Andrew’s family.

“I know from speaking to them that with every passing day, month, and year their desire to know what happened to him grows.

“If you have any answers to these questions, perhaps today is the time to speak to someone.”

For the past 14 years, Kevin’s father has also been diligently raising awareness and searching for his son.

He has been working closely with Missing People, a national charity that aids in the public’s search for those who have disappeared.

More information is available on Kevin’s blog.

If anybody knows Andrew, please contact the police on 101 or submit information online, quoting incident number 161 of 13 September 2017.
