Ben Needham from Sheffield went missing when he was 21 months old, during the family vacation on the island of Kos, Greece, in 1991.
Kerry Needham, Ben’s mother, who even after 24 years, believes her son is alive, showed up on a Greek television on Friday, asking people once again to contact her if they have any information, BBC reported.
Detectives looking for Ben, said that they have a couple of possible leads after the show, including a young man who called during the show claiming that he resembles the computer-generated image of how Ben may look at the age of 25.
As the BBC reported, detectives will contact this man and arrange DNA sampling in order to prove if he really is missing Ben.
After the TV show, the South Yorkshire Police received about 30 emails and phone calls in total. Detective Matthew Fenwick said that some of the information is new, while some fits the data police have already collected.
Kerry Needham says she always believed her son is still alive.
“This is simply my inner feeling. It is like he is saying: I am here, come and take me. I believe he is out there and I think it won’t take long before we find each other. Anyway, I am hoping. I want him to know that I love him today as much as I loved him the day he was born. I will never stop looking for him”, Kerry said.
Ben disappeared on July 24, 1991, from the island of Kos, where he was with his parents and grandparents, who were renovating the family house in the village of Iraklise.
