Ben Needham appeal to Greek media

Leaflet being distributed in Kos

A press conference is underway on the island of Kos in Greece with officers from South Yorkshire police appealing for help in their search for missing Ben Needham.

A leaflet is being distributed throughout the island, bearing a picture of Ben as he was when he disappeared at the age of two, 25 years ago. Calendar's Duncan Wood is at the press conference and he spoke to Detective Inspector Jon Cousins before it began.

Operation Ben detectives to make fresh appeal to Kos islanders

Senior detectives from South Yorkshire Police are on the Greek island of Kos tonight preparing to launch a major new appeal in the search for Ben Needham who will have been missing for 25 years in July.

They're following up new leads from Operation Ben, the Home Office backed inquiry that's gone back over all the evidence gathered over more than two decades.

They're also targeting the islanders themselves to try and find the piece of the jigsaw that could solve the mystery.
