The team of British search experts will be led by Detective Superintendent Matt Fenwick, from South Yorkshire Police, the Daily Mirror reported.
They are investigating the possibility that 21-month-old Ben could have accidentally been buried under rubble near the home the family were staying at on the island of Kos in Greece.
Ben Needham's mother Kerry, 41, told the Daily Mirror:
