A man who could be a British toddler that was kidnapped on the Greek Island of Kos in 1991, has been located by the Cyprus police on Monday.
The Greek authorities were given a video of a man seen in Cyprus who resembles a computer-generated image of how Ben Needham would look today at age 23. The man was with a group of Roma people at a religious celebration near the town of Limassol, reports Ekathimerini news. He was captured on a video during the service and the individual who filmed the video decided to give it to the police because of the case of Maria, the little blonde girl that was found in a Roma camp, last week.
The man was located by the Cyprus police and he consented to coming to the police station and doing a DNA test. The man who has light-brown hair and blue eyes, according to Greek newspapers and had moved to Cyprus from Greece to avoid mandatory military service in Greece.
"I can't say how long the results will take to come through, but when we get them, then we will know for definite whether this is the missing British boy," a CID officer in Nicosia told The Daily Telegraph.
The man reportedly told police that he was Romanian and was visiting his girlfriend on Cyprus.
Authorities have contacted Scotland Yard and asked them to request DNA samples from the Needham family.
