Three years ago Kerry Needham was delivered the devastating news that police believed he had died on the day he went missing - killed in an accident with a digger.

But she still has no definitive answer. Mark Witty reports.

Your 30th birthday is a big milestone isn't it and realistically we should be doing something like a surprise birthday party for him or something like that but this year again it's another birthday without him and it's another birthday not knowing where he is."
