I have a theory, but would like to check with someone else.

18.... I think.

What's your theory?

+2, +2, +1 and that continues.

11 and 13 are prime numbers, so maybe 16,18 are the next two

I would agree. Four numbers is not much to go on but missing prime numbers seems more 'logical' than just +2, +2, +1.
