"I can't believe it's been three years since you went missing, Chris! I'll never forget those fateful 11 days where the country united on Facebook to bring you back.
I thought I'd let you and your family know that whenever my mates and I go to Download festival we take extra safety precautions such as spare phone batteries, and identify meeting points if any of us get separated.
I hope this may bring a little comfort knowing that there may be some lives saved from your passing. Take care dude, rest in peace."

What happened that night. It's so sad but even worse not to have closure too,  I feel for your friends & family so much & I can't imagine the pain they must be going through.
Keep smiling Chris your smile impacted so many people & touched many many hearts, I hope you are looking down smiling on your family & watching & guiding them.  Beautiful souls like yours live on & stay close to loved ones.
