The family of a toddler who went missing from a British Army barracks in Germany more than thirty years ago say they have had an apology from the Royal Military Police and an admission that there were failings in the initial investigation into her disappearance.
Katrice Lee from Hartlepool was two-years-old when she vanished in 1981.
Her father says the apparent apology came during a private meeting between her mother, sister and the head of the Military Police.
