A team of British police officers has arrived on the Greek island of Kos to examine a mound of earth and rubble close to where Sheffield toddler Ben Needham went missing 21 years ago. The officers are leading a group of specialist search advisers
who will be supporting the Greek authorities as they decide whether to excavate the mound. Ben vanished on the island in July 1991, when he was 21 months old, after his mother and grandparents moved there from Sheffield. Despite a number of
possible sightings and a range of theories about what happened to him, no trace of youngster has been found. His mother, Kerry Needham, has spent two decades looking for her son and has consistently said she believes he was abducted and is still alive. From Kos ,Duncan Wood has sent this report.
Cadaver dogs, specially trained to pick up the scent of human remains, are being used on farmland where Ben Needham was last seen.
Kerry Needham has spoken exclusively to Calendar as police step up their search to find her son Ben, on the Greek holiday island of Kos.
