South Yorkshire Police have said they now believe Ben Needham, the Sheffield toddler who disappeared 25 years ago, died in an accident at the time. Detectives who had travelled to the Greek Island of Kos confirmed that the search is over as they conclude the young boy was killed accidentally by a digger driver near the farm house where he disappeared. Ben was 21 months old when he went missing during a family holiday in Kos on 24 July 1991.
Detectives searching for missing toddler Ben Needham on the Greek island of Kos have found pieces of fabric on land close to where the toddler was last seen. Ben, from Sheffield, was 21-months old when he went missing during a family holiday in July 1991. A fresh excavation of farmland began on Monday, following new evidence.
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.
