Q is missing
Quentin Godwin

MAY 2020 - a new article by NZ investigative journalist Kelly Dennet online.
The big hope for me is that someone reading this excellent recap of Q's 'story' will come forward with more information, helping us find out what happened in 1992.

JULY 2014 update.

July 30th was Q’s 41st birthday and uncannily on this day I get a letter from the NZ Coroner to register his ‘death’ – a decision has finally been made after a last-minute Police inquiry into information received back in February, on the day of the Inquest. 

So the Coroner has decided that ‘on the balance of probabilities’ he has either taken his own life or come to an untimely end somehow. Yes, that’s obviously a possibility but with absolutely no proof it isn’t enough reason for me to believe he is dead. There are too many questions unanswered and other possibilities which could equally be valid, so for me the book is still open and the final chapter far from written. 


May 1992 is a long time ago. Since then, the family has grown up, moved around the world, started their own families. 20 years later the search for Quentin goes on because it is so hard for all the family to just let it be. 

So - what now? 

It is possible that, because of his depression, Q has been in contact with health professionals or social workers so this group of people may have some knowledge of his whereabouts.......

The questions are still there as is the grief and sheer pain of not knowing anything. No news is not necessarily good news and we have had to learn to live with the never ending questions. The search continues............


As mother of a 'longterm missing person' I have become a Family Representative for the charity Missing People in London. It has involved me in different events and occasions, from speaking to a panel of MP's at a Parliamentary Inquiry to telling 'our story' to corporate donors for the charity. I have also met other parents and families of people who are 'living in limbo' as we are, not able to grieve and wondering how or where their  missing loved ones may be.

Facebook - there's a group for anyone to join called 'Looking for Quentin' 

We know there is a Quentin Godwin  living in France - sadly he is NOT our Q. 

Finally a song - thanks to Lucinda Williams for permission to use this track Are You Alright? from her album West and to Alina for her great video on Youtube Have a listen please.
