The team searching for the body of Moors murder victim Keith Bennett feel they are getting "very close" to resolving the case, according to the Daily Mirror.
Welsh mountain rescue leader David Jones, who visited the moor with Keith's mother Winnie Johnson four years ago, said new evidence has reduced the search to an area the size of three football pitches.
Mr Jones told the newspaper: "I am hoping 100% that we can find Keith, but I am aware that it might not be him buried.
"We've identified three specific new areas of the moor and will operate a grid system of search using the equipment and dogs."
