South Yorkshire detectives on Kos have spoken to "significant people" in Needham investigation

South Yorkshire detectives on Kos say they've spoken to "significant people" in the last week as they continue investigations into the disappearance of Ben Needham from the Greek island 25 years ago.

The team of ten officers, from Operation Ben, arrived on the island on May 10 to appeal for locals to come forward with any information about Ben's disappearance on July 24, 1991. The 21-month-old vanished from outside a farmhouse his grandad Eddie was renovating in a remote part of the island.

At the Press conference on May 10 officers revealed they were trying to trace an anonymous man who had called a phone line in 1993 claiming Ben had been re-named Andreas and was being looked after by a man called Nikos.

Last Friday ( May 13) Det Insp Jon Cousins and Greek-born Northumbria Police Inspector Panos Dedes appeared on the Greek "Missing" programme "Light at the end of the Tunnel" which resulted in more than 120 calls to the studio and Greek mobile phones being carried by officers.Since their arrival 300 pieces of information have been passed on to the team, which was formed last year after a successful application for a grant from the Home Office.

It's believed the officers will be returning to the UK next week.
