Lee Boxall

Post  milly on Sun 23 Oct - 23:36








On the morning of 10 September 1988, Lee left his home in Cheam, to spend the morning, with his friend, window shopping in Sutton, Surrey.

Towards the end of the morning Lee told his friend that he might go to Selhurst Park to watch a football match. The two boys parted company in Sutton High Street. No-one has seen Lee since.

It is unknown whether Lee ever got to Selhurst Park. Extensive publicity efforts at the Park, by Lee's parents, who distributed leaflets all over the ground at the Park, no-one ever came forward to report seeing Lee.

Lee was 15 years old at the time of disappearance - he was estimated to be 5ft 8ins tall, with light brown hair, grey eyes and a dimple in his left cheek.

If you have any information about Lee's whereabouts, please contact the National Missing Persons Helpline in complete confidence on 0500 700 700.

Lee Boxell

The parents of Lee Boxell haven’t changed anything in his bedroom since the day he vanished from their lives in September 1988 when he was 15. He would be 34 now - and his broken hearted mother wonders if she has walked past him in the street and not recognised him.

In their campaign, Lee’s family managed to break new ground for other missing children as before their case only missing girls made it into the Press. And Lee’s disappearance was given nationwide coverage following an exhaustive police search.

Lee left his home in Cheam to meet up with a friend in Sutton, Surrey. Lee and his friend spent the morning window-shopping. Towards the end of the morning Lee said he might go to Selhurst Park to watch a football match and the boys parted in Sutton High street. No-one has seen Lee since.

Nobody knows if he ever got to the game. Lee’s parents left leaflets all over the ground but nobody reported seeing him. Footballer John Fashanu made a TV appeal and T’Pau singer Carol Decker did the same at gigs but to no avail.

His family have desperately continued their search for him over the last 17 years, trying to keep his name in the Press in case anyone saw him. His disappearance was featured in The Sun too.

His photo was even published on milk cartons in Iceland. It’s a shame that doesn’t that happen any more, I wonder how effective it was. But why Iceland, I wonder.

Here are some heartbreaking quotes from a local newspaper interview two years ago:

“Lee’s parents Christine and Peter and his younger sister Lindsay, now 29, are desperate to find out what happened. Appeals in the past have not turned up any genuine sightings.

Christine said: “The National Missing Persons Helpline have been fantastic and got Iceland to put Lee’s picture on their milk cartons, but I just wish all supermarkets did the same.

“We’re not expecting anyone to call but we just have to try anything and clutch at straws in the hope that someone will know him.

“Obviously it’s hard when someone dies, but for someone to go missing it’s just so hard. Lee’s grandparents went to their graves not knowing what happened to him.”

In their campaign, the family managed to break new ground for other missing children, because before their case only missing girls made it into the Press.

But Lee’s story and picture was in every national newspaper, on television, on the side of Body Shop vans, and in Soul Asylum’s pop video for the song The Missing.

His parents, to this day, are still unable to change anything in his room. It is exactly as he left it in 1988.”
