Ben Needham's 24th Birthday today
« on: October 29, 2013, 02:51:37 AM »
I know this is not the correct forum but Ben's threads get so little attention sadly that I felt it needed to be posted here. 

Ben is 24 years old today. I hope with all my heart  that he is still on this mortal coil that he is well and happy  and even if he is not aware that today is his birthday that this day brings him happiness. My thoughts are with his parents and family and their friends.  My greatest wish is that he is found soon and that his family finally get the same governmental backing and financial support that the McCanns have to find him and bring him home.

Happy Birthday Ben, wherever you are x

I would second that and as you have posted this on Maddies forum would say the renewed hope that Ben may still be alive gives us all hope hat one day both of them will be found
Both UK and Portuguese have stated the McCanns are not suspects.... This rules out parental involvement
The archiving report ruled out Woke and wandered
Abduction is therefore shown to be an almost certainty and explains why this is what SY believe happened IMO

My sentiments entirely. 

The current news on Ben:-

Quote
Ben Needham's mother has always insisted her son is still alive, "stolen" by people traffickers when he was a toddler, 22 years ago.

And now Greek authorities suspect a young man, living with a Roma family in Cyprus, whom they say could be the missing boy.

The man, who could potentially have DNA tests, came to the attention of the Greek police when he fled the mainland with his family a few years ago to avoid compulsory military service.

The notion that innocence prevails over guilt – when there is no evidence to the contrary – is what separates civilization from barbarism.    Unfortunately, there are remains of barbarism among us.    Until very recently, it headed the PJ in Portimão. I hope he was the last one.

Happy birthday Ben, let's hope that you are home soon.  I'm keeping everything crossed with this new possibility that Ben may have been found.

Ben Needham: Man suspected of being missing British boy hands himself in for DNA tests
29 Oct 2013 06:30



His frantic mum faces an agonising wait to find out if it is indeed her long-lost boy – on the same day he would have turned 24.

Can't see any features of Ben in him, can anyone else? Plus Ben is 24.

Lets hope it is Ben!

If DNA testing proves the man in the photo is Ben Needham, then age-progression artists' impressions leave a lot to be desired. I don't think he resembles either his father or mother... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ben-needham-missing-boys-dad-2020220



The video here gives a clearer picture... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/ben-needham-man-suspected-being-2651416

Should it turn out to be Ben Needham... I'll eat my antenna.

Me too. This lad has too much of a wide turned up nose, compared to Ben. I think that is not a feature that would change so much, whatever age!
