The mother of Sheffield boy Ben Needham, who vanished on a Greek island 22 years ago, has accused the Prime Minister of not giving his case the same backing as that of Madeleine McCann.
Kerry Needham called for the same support and financial backing offered to the Metropolitan Police, who are heading the search for Madeleine, who vanished in Portugal in 2003.
A dossier she helped compile suggests a blond boy was seen eight times with a Greek criminal family in the area Ben disappeared.
Mrs Needham, aged 41, of Ecclesfield, said: “We just want the same level of support and for South Yorkshire to have the same resources – finances, if that’s what they need. I’m not being critical of the McCann family at all.
“What I’m being critical of is the fact that Ben has been missing 22 years now and we’ve never had this support from the British Government.
“David Cameron just needs to take a closer look and offer South Yorkshire Police his support, or the Government’s support, and whatever South Yorkshire Police need, give it to them.”
