Kerry Needham urges police to look for Maria case links

The mother of Ben Needham, speaking exclusively to Calendar, said she wants the Greek authorities to investigate the case of Maria, a four-year-old girl recovered from a Roma camp, to see if there are any connections to the disappearance of her son 22 years ago.

Ms Needham and her family believe Ben was abducted, possibly by people from the Roma community, from Kos in July 1991.

Ben's mother was told the Greek authorities never believed a blonde European child could be harboured in a Roma camp without anyone knowing, but the discovery of Maria disproves that theory, according to Ms Needham.

She spoke to us via Skype while on holiday abroad.
