    I had a couple of hours walk around Ocknell in Fritham this afternoon, I know it's a bit away from the current search area, but every minute and every search counts in these situations. Let's hope he turns up soon!

    Most of the sightings have been in the New Forest area although one was thought to be nearer to the Wiltshire border.

    Come on narrow it down a bit where in the new forest ?

    Agree with your request. If there have been reported sightings of Ross near the Wiltshire border, these must have been an hour or two after he left home. Do the times of these sightings tie in? If so, then the area towards the Bramble Hill Hotel needs searching, and that's miles from Abbotswell. More information please! Willing to help after work.

    Has anyone thought he may well have gone to the Isle of Wight at all? Its only a boat's ride over there and a walks distance to the boat station?

    cant believe 3 unemployed lads ages 18-20 from lymington that don't even know this boy that has gone missing have joined the search for him they may be jobless but to me these 3 lads have helped and not sat around like most of the jobless youths of today. well done Kelvin Josh, James. on using initiative to get out there and help ...
