British police searching for missing Ben Needham are expected to start digging up an area close to where he went missing in Greece on Friday.
His mother Kerry told the Daily Mirror she has lived her life "convinced" she would see Ben again one day but the new search has "put doubts" into her head for the first time.
She added: "If they find Ben's body I'm finished. I don't want to hear they have found my son's bones. I want to hear he is alive, well and happy.
"I want them to do this search and then rule it out. Then we can all move on and concentrate on finding my son."
Sniffer dogs and diggers have arrived at a vacant plot on the Greek Island of Kos where police have launched a new search for Ben Needham.
