A woman who claims the young boy featured in so-called Islamic State's latest propaganda film is her grandson has said the situation is "devastating".
Victoria Dare told the BBC'sThe One Show that she recognised the boy - thought to be aged under five - by his eyelashes and mouth.
She told the programme she had not seen her grandson or daughter since 2012.
"I am not taking it as he is my grandson to be in that situation," she said. "That is the way I can deal with the situation.
"That joy is taken away from me which is very devastating. I need my grandchildren, my daughter, I need them back."
Despite multiple claims to the contrary, the man behind the mask in the latest IS propaganda video has not yet been identified.
A leading candidate emerges in the push to name the 'Brit' from the latest IS killings video - but his sister and mentor say it isn't him.
Henry Dare told ITV News he had not seen his grandson for three years since his daughter, a known jihadi, took him with her to Syria.
