    Dad who fears son, 14, was snatched by paedophile gang says now all he has are pictures and memories of boy

    Flicking through the family photo album, dad-of-two Kevin Gosden can’t help smiling at the memories he holds so dear.

    But they are tinged with a sense of desperate sadness.

    Every day since his happy, bright son Andrew went missing aged 14, he has struggled to keep going.

    Kevin fears he may have been snatched by a paedophile gang after bunking off school and taking a train to London from his home in Yorkshire.

    Now he is begging police to reopen the case as the tenth anniversary of the boy’s disappearance approaches.

    Police launch fresh appeal to find missing Doncaster teen Andrew Gosden

    Police are launching a fresh appeal for information about Andrew Gosden who disappeared ten years ago.

    Speaking on ITV this morning, Andrew's father Kevin Gosden said it is an "endless nightmare" living in limbo.

    We all struggle everyday because we think about Andrew all the time. We still have no idea why he went off that day, no idea what happened to him after he got to King's Cross.
    – Kevin Gosden

    His family say the the disappearance was "totally out of character" for Andrew.

    I've almost wished on occasions that we'd had an argument or anything that might give us a clue or a hint [about what happened]. But he seemed like his normal self.

    Fresh leads and charity cash follow appeal for missing Andrew Gosden

    Fresh leads and thousands of pounds for a charity appeal were generated by a fresh appeal to find a Doncaster teen, missing for 10 years.

    Friends and family of Andrew Gosden collected over £2,700 for a missing people's charity, and took part in a nationwide publicity campaign to try to appeal for clues to what has happened the Andrew.

    To mark the 10 year anniversary, dad Kevin and mum Glenys collected money for the Missing People charity Find Every Child campaign, on which Andrew is featured.

    They collected cash on the forecourt of Doncaster railway station, while Kevin raised cash through a 10 hour sponsored silence.

    Between the two appeals, they raised £2,737.50.

    The appeal has also brought fresh hope to the family, after members of the public responded to their appeals for information.

    Possible 'sighting' of missing Doncaster teen Andrew Gosden ten years after disappearance

    A Doncaster teenager who has been missing for more than ten years could be living and working in Lincoln, according to new information. Andrew Gosden, who disappeared in 2007 at the age of 14, could be working in the area according to a possible 'sighting' of him shared on Facebook by his father Kevin There have been no confimed sightings of Andrew since he was spotted leaving King's Cross railway station in London on September 14, 2007. Now his father Kevin has said there has been information suggesting his son - who would now be 24 - could be in Lincolnshire.

    Writing on the "Missing Andrew Gosden" Facebook page he wrote: "Last year, I was contacted by someone who believed they may have had a conversation with Andrew online. "A number of clues were present but nothing 100% conclusive. "The conversation suggested that Andrew could be alive and well and working in a shop in the Lincoln area. "We quietly searched these areas at the beginning of the year and in April a number of volunteers helped us to distribute 5,000 leaflets in the area.

    "Four possible sightings were received, but none were Andrew. Needless to say, should you happen to live in the Lincoln area or have friends that do, please share this with them, but remember that we could be out of date as this has been going on for many months." He added: "Andrew, if you should see this, please know that we have never given up searching for you. "We understand that you may find it hard to re-establish contact. We would love to know you are alive and well. Please call Missing People in confidence and include a memory which we share to confirm your identity. We have always loved you and cared about you. We will always be here for you." Andrew has been the subject of intense nationwide searches and appeals since he went missing 11 years ago. The gifted McAuley School pupil left the family home in Balby, withdrew £200 from his bank account and bought a one-way ticket to King's Cross from Doncaster and has not been seen since. Meanwhile, Mr Gosden has said rock band Muse, one of Andrew's favourite acts, will screen a cinema appeal nationwide on July 12. The appeal will be made during the screening of their Drones tour. Anyone with information about Andrew, please call Missing People on 116000 or the Police on 101, freephone 24/7.

    Wouldn't that be something if they found him after all this time? What a blessing for his mother.

    This is a case very close to my heart. Over the years I’ve swayed back and forth with my theories.
    I really want Andrew to be ok, perhaps living in Lincoln under a new identity, and for whatever reason doesn’t wish to be found. Andrews father has heavily leafleted the area and appeared on local news. The leaflets make it clear that if he doesn’t want to be found could he just let the family know and they will respect this and stop looking.
    I realise that it’s more likely something unfortunate happened to him soon after the last sighting and his remains will never be discovered.

    Devastated dad of missing teen ‘envies’ the parents of murdered kids and longs for police to hand him ‘a bag of bones’ so his misery ends

    May 2019

    WATCHING the news, Andrew Gosden's tortured dad finds himself envying the parents of murdered kids.

    Kevin catches himself instantly, but he still can't help wishing the police would show up at his house with a "bag of bones" so he could finally have an end to the torment he has suffered for 12 years.

    His son, Andrew, vanished into thin air on September 14, 2007, aged just 14, after travelling from his home in Doncaster to London when he "uncharacteristically" skipped school.

    In the years since he vanished, dad Kevin has had a breakdown, attempted suicide and had to resign from his job.

    "I always thought the worst feeling ever would be to have a child die but this to me is worse," Kevin says.

    "I have caught myself before, to my shame, feeling envious of parents whose child has been murdered but then you stop and want to hug them.

    "We just want to know what happened to our son before we die."

    Thousands of people walk past Andrew's face every day - his smile blown up on posters on billboards, train platforms and along major roads.

    But despite being the "poster boy" for Missing People, no trace of Andrew has ever been found - leading to 12 years of pain for his family.

    Chillingly, Kevin says: "We still don't know if he is alive or dead and change our minds on a frequent basis - it's horrendous.

    "The not knowing is the worst. I remember saying to a police officer once I'd rather him show up with a bag of bones and say it was Andrew then continue to live like this."

    Andrew Gosden: New 'aged' image of boy missing for 12 years

    A new "aged" photograph has been released of a boy who disappeared when he was 14 years old.

    The image shows how Andrew could look as a 26-year-old and without wearing his glasses.

    Det Insp Andy Knowles, who is leading the South Yorkshire Police investigation, said he hoped the new image would "jog someone's memory".

    "Andrew has now been missing 12 years and his family are understandably desperate for any answers that may help them understand what happened to their loved one," he said.

    "I would also like to take this opportunity to once more appeal to Andrew directly. Andrew, know that you can contact us completely confidentially, let us know you are safe so we can reassure your family that you have come to no harm."
