Gap Year Peril

Earlier this evening, British television aired a Tonight Special on ITV called Mind The Gap Year as thousands of students prepare for rite-of-passage trips to exotic locations. The programme followed the journey of Jo Gibson-Clark to Cambodia, where her son Eddie disappeared nearly three years ago, as her desperate search exposes the hidden dangers faced by young Brits seeking adventure. Eddie Gibson has not been heard from since 24 October 2004 when he emailed his mother to say he was planning to return to the UK and despite massive television and newspaper coverage and a poster campaign in Cambodia, Eddie has not been found. For more information on Eddie's case visit their website here.
