£20,000 ‘reward offered’ after thirty five years of Lee Boxell Sutton disappearance.

£20,000 Reward for Information on Lee Boxwell’s Disappearance A reward of £20,000 is being offered to individuals who can assist the police in locating the remains of Lee Boxwell, who vanished from his Sutton residence 35 years ago at the age of 15.

Decades of Agony for Lee Boxwell’s Family Since his last confirmed sighting on Sutton High Street on September 10, 1988, when he left his family home, there have been no verified sightings of Lee Boxwell. This long period of uncertainty has left his parents and sister in agony, desperate for answers regarding his disappearance.

Father’s Plea for Closure Peter Boxell, Lee’s father, who is now in his late 70s, expressed his fears that his son may have been murdered. He appealed to anyone with information to come forward and help locate Lee’s remains so that the family could finally say goodbye to their beloved son. He urged people to do what’s right and contact the police investigation team or the charity Crimestoppers with any information.

Lee Boxell’s Last Known Movements On the day he disappeared in 1988, Lee Boxell left his Sutton home to go shopping and met a friend. They separated around 1 pm. The last confirmed sighting of Lee was at Sutton High Street at approximately 2.20 pm. His movements on that fateful day have been thoroughly examined during the extensive police investigation.

Police Belief in Lee’s Fate Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn stated that while the Metropolitan Police lacks conclusive evidence that Lee came to harm, they believe he is no longer alive. The investigation has involved interviewing individuals who were believed to be involved in or knowledgeable about Lee’s disappearance. However, these individuals provided conflicting accounts.

Conflicting Claims and Unsubstantiated Stories One man, now deceased, claimed to have helped Lee escape and live under an assumed name away from his family. This account was investigated and found not to be credible. The same individual and associates asserted that they had seen Lee a year later. However, anonymous tip-offs from the public suggested that this man had bragged about burying Lee in the churchyard at St Dunstan’s Church in Cheam. An extensive archaeological dig at the churchyard did not yield any leads in the case.

Appeal to Former Youth Club Members Information received during the investigation also suggested that Lee had visited an unofficial youth club at St Dunstan’s Church referred to locally as “the shed.” Many local children and teenagers frequented this location at the time. These individuals, now adults, may possess crucial information that they haven’t shared in the past.

Hope for New Information Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn’s hope is that individuals who previously felt unable to come forward with information may now feel compelled to share what they know. Her top priority is to locate Lee so he can be reunited with his parents, providing them with answers and the opportunity to bury their beloved son.

£20,000 Reward from Crimestoppers Crimestoppers has offered a reward of £20,000 for information. To be eligible for this reward, information must be provided directly to the independent charity Crimestoppers, rather than through the police.
