Kyle’s father, Alan, said: “We want to find Kyle. It would be good to know that Mary will be with him.”
Detective chief superintendent Nicky Brain, who is leading the investigation, said: “Our investigation into what happened to Kyle that night in December remains very much active.
“Eight years on and we remain in regular contact with Kyle’s family, and continue to receive information from members of the public, all of which is recorded and investigated by officers on our major incident team.
“This has obviously been an extensive enquiry. To date, 40 areas have been searched, over 200 people interviewed, over 180 intelligence logs submitted and nearly 900 witness statements taken.
“Unfortunately though, we still don’t have the answers we need, and Kyle’s family so desperately want.
“We are still keen to receive any information that may assist our enquiries, however minor you may feel it is.”
Gwent Police has launched a website dedicated to Kyle’s disappearance, where people can submit any relevant information they may have on the case. The information will go directly to the investigating officers.
Gwent Police can be contacted on 101, quoting log 397 of 30/12/12.
Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
