A new age-progression photograph of missing Andrew Gosden, who has been missing from Doncaster since 2007, has been released.
Andrew’s dad Kevin has been working with Missing People, collating useful information to help the public in their search for Andrew.
Andrew was 14 when he disappeared in September 2007. He would be 26 now and over the years, many sightings of people who bear some resemblance to Andrew. No positive sighting of Andrew has ever been confirmed.
There are some specific features of Andrew’s appearance and character, which his dad highlights in his latest blog, to accompany the new photograph.
Previous age-progression photographs have always shown Andrew wearing glasses. At the time Andrew went missing, his vision was very poor without correction and he needed strong lenses.
The new photograph shows Andrew without glasses, as he may now be using contact lenses.
Andrew has an unusual and distinctive right ear which has been highlighted before.
However, if Andrew has slightly longer hair then this may not be immediately noticeable.
What may be more noticeable is that Andrew is deaf in his left ear and struggles to locate the direction of sounds.
Andrew used to speak quickly and quietly, without a strong accent, which is unlikely to have changed.
Anyone who believes they may know someone with these identifying features is asked to please call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 161 of 13 September 2017.
