On the morning of 1 February 1995, Richey Edwards, lyricist and guitarist for the band Manic Street Preachers checked out of a London hotel and disappeared. A toll-booth receipt found in Richey's apartment in Cardiff, Wales suggests that he went home before he vanished. His car was found at a service station en route between Wales and London 17 days later, but there was 

no sign of Richey. He left many clues, but what does it all mean? His family refuses to give up hope and will keep on searching until they have answers.
