Sister of boy who disappeared from Addiscombe in 1986 vows never to give up hope

THE sister of a boy who disappeared after leaving his house to buy some eggs is doing a run to raise money for a charity which helps to find missing people.

Kevin Hicks was 16 when he left his house in Sissinghurst Road, Addiscombe, on a Sunday evening in March 1986.

He was on his way to the shop, only 200 yards away, to buy eggs for a school project the next day, but he never returned.

With both his parents dead and the family home sold, sister Alexandra Hicks has taken up the torch to find Kevin.

Alexandra, 40, will be doing the fun run at Clapham Common on May 25, National Missing Persons Day, for the charity Missing People.

Alex – mum to Faye, 20, and Amy, 17 – said Kevin would have turned 40 in 2010.

She added: "It would have been nice to celebrate it in person. I just hope that we can celebrate a few more birthdays if he walks back into my life.

"I'm not angry, I wouldn't even ask why [he disappeared]. All I will do is give him a hug and update him on what's going on. I will say to him, when he's ready, if he wants to tell me why he went, he can.

"I'm never giving up hope. It would be nice to have some answers or for him to make contact. A lot of people say 'come on Alex, it's nearly 25 years'. But I've always thought he was out there."

On her Justgiving page she said: "This is a charity very close to my heard, as my brother went missing on the second of March 1986, aged 16, and is still missing. The charity is run on donations and help to find missing people and children, new and old cases. Please give as much as you can."
