War Hero
"Detectives will this week renew the search for Simon Parkes, acting on new information which could finally resolve the young sailor’s mysterious disappearance over three decades ago.

Simon vanished without trace in 1986 after a night out in Gibraltar, where his ship HMS Illustrious was docked. He was 18 at the time.

Police have never given up on the case, called Operation Thornhill, and today will commence a search of Trafalgar Cemetery acting on new information received by officers of the Hampshire Constabulary, which has worked closely with the Royal Gibraltar Police over the years to try and resolve the disappearance."
