Police searching for missing toddler Ben Needham 'uncover 60 items of interest'
Police investigating the disappearance of a young boy who went missing on the Greek island of Kos in 19991 have come across 60 'items of interest'.
The police are investigating claims Ben Needham, who was 21 months when he went missing, was run over by a digger 25 years ago.
They have now extended their stay on the island to search a second site, 750 metres from where Ben was last seen and close to the farmhouse where the dig began last month, BBC reports.
Det Insp Jon Cousins of South Yorkshire Police said: "There are over 60 items that need looking at and I'll engage with the magistrates here in Kos, to explain the significance of them.
"They are items I want to compare to other things, either information or items that were recovered throughout the past 18 months or in 2012."
Material that was deposited on the second site over the past few decades is being broken up so the soil can be dug to a depth of two feet.
It is understood the team will spend two or three days on the site.
Ben vanished from a farmhouse, which his grandfather was renovating, in the village of Iraklis in July 1991.
