THE parents of a teenage boy who disappeared without a trace over a year ago are taking their campaign to find him into schools.

Andrew Gosden, now aged 15, disappeared from his Doncaster home on September 14, 2007.

He has family in Chislehurst, Sidcup and Blackheath, but the last confirmed sighting of him was on the day he disappeared when he arrived at London's Kings Cross Station.

Now his family are launching a new campaign in all UK schools urging youngsters who may have seen the missing teenager to come forward.

His father, Kevin Gosden, 43, said: ""Despite many possible sightings, we still do not have one shred of hard evidence relating to his whereabouts, and we are beginning to feel less hopeful that he is alive.

"I am e-mailing every state secondary school in the UK asking for help, particularly from staff and year 10 or 11 pupils, who have noticed someone new in their community of their own age.

"We are hoping that people will help by joining the Bebo and Facebook groups dedicated to searching for Andrew. Pictures are available on these to help gain an impression of Andrew's looks, even though they will have changed.

"Certainly our love for him makes us want to leave no stone unturned in our search. We desire nothing more than to know he is alive and unharmed, to be reunited if possible and to offer him our help and support if he finds himself in a difficult situation."

Anyone who may have information on Mr Gosden's whereabouts is urged to contact the police, or Missing People on freephone 0500 700 700.
