The mother of Ben Needham, who went missing from Kos 24 years ago this July , hopes an open letter to her son will prompt more people to come forward with information.
Kerry Needham posted the message on her website asking for anyone who believes they might be Ben to get in touch, and telling her son that she loves him.
The message has also been translated into Greek, to target certain Facebook communities in the country.
