Mum of tot missing since 1991 won't give up hunt

THE mother of Ben Needham, who went missing on a Greek holiday island 21 years ago, has vowed to continue looking for him after a new police operation failed to find his remains.

A team of British and Greek police and other experts began a search two weeks ago of land close to the farmhouse on Kos where the 21-month-old disappeared in 1991.

But, after nothing was found, Kerry Needham said she had been given fresh hope that her son may still be alive.

Mrs Needham told 'BBC Breakfast': "In all honesty, I didn't believe that Ben was buried there anyway."

Mrs Needham said she believes her son was abducted to be sold through legal adoption.
