South Yorkshire Police recieve Home Office funding for Ben Needham investigation

South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, has received Home Office funding to allow South Yorkshire Police to continue to support the Greek authorities search for Ben Needham. Ben went missing on the Greek Island of Kos almost 25 years ago. His mum, Kerry Needham has always believed he’s still alive, and likely to be in Greece. Last year, police officers and Ben’s family visited Greece to take part in a TV appeal. Since then, the police have followed a number of new leads, and people have come forward with more information. Now, the four hundred and fifty thousand pounds will allow the work to continue until October 2016.
