Appeal shows lost Ben Needham as an adult



A mother whose toddler son was abducted in Greece 16 years ago hopes a new computer generated picture could help trace him. The mysterious disappearance of Ben Needham while staying with his family on the holiday island of Kos has similarities to that of Madeleine McCann.

But his mother Kerry Grist, 35, believes less has been done to find her blonde-haired son who was 21 months old at the time. She hopes the release of the high-tech police photofit of how Ben may now look could help reunite him with her.

Mrs Grist appealed for him to question who he was an get in touch with her if he recognised himself from the picture.

She feels Kate and Gerry McCann have received a much higher because of their status as doctors compared to her as a single parent with her parents at the time.

I was searching the net for anything new in appeals for Ben being Christmas time. I found a video dedicated to Ben for his 19th Birthday. Sorry it's late Ben but we will continue to search for you.

Happy 19th Birthday Ben

Mum of missing Ben set to help families

A MOTHER from Sheffield whose son vanished 19 years ago has joined the Missing People charity to campaign for greater rights for families with loved ones who have disappeared.
Kerry Needham, aged 38, from Ecclesfield, has become an official 'family representative' for the charity - a new role created to give a greater voice to those affected when someone disappears.

Her appointment coincides with the launch of the charity's Missing Rights campaign, which is asking the Government to give families of missing people the same rights as victims of crime - emotional, practical and legal support.

Kerry, whose son Ben vanished when he was just two years old, said: "The pain of having a child go missing is unbearable and I support Missing People's campaign to ease the heartache and confusion by giving families of missing people the same basic rights as victims of crime.

"My first task is to ensure MPs in South Yorkshire show their support for the Missing Rights campaign by signing the Early Day Motion 1158. This will show the Government just how much support there is to get families like ours the emotional, practical and legal help we so desperately need."

Martin Houghton-Brown, chief executive of Missing People, said: "If your house is burgled you are automatically offered emotional, practical and legal support. If your child goes missing you may get nothing.

"Families affected in South Yorkshire face injustice such as being forced into otherwise avoidable debt, homes being seized, jobs being lost and having to cope with social stigma. This can lead to family breakdown, depression and suicidal thoughts.

"Family representatives will, together, vocalise the diverse needs, emotions and thoughts of all family affected."

Ben Needham, who would now be 21, vanished on the Greek island of Kos, where his grandparents were renovating a farmhouse.

One theory is he was abducted by a gang and sold.

Please sign the following petition:
We, the undersigned, request that the UK and Greek Governments and Police Authorities work together to re-open and re-investigate all previous and current leads regarding Ben's disappearance.

We request that the UK Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron liases with his Greek Counterpart, Mr George Papandreou to co-operate fully together in ensuring investigations are carried out properly and effectively.
