The family of missing Ben Needham remain “strong and resolute” in their search for him after a DNA test on a young man in Cyprus proved negative.

Ben’s mother, Kerry Needham, and her family spent Ben’s 24th birthday (Wednesday) waiting for test results on a man in video filmed in Cyprus.

But a post on the ‘Help Find Ben Needham Facebook’ page confirmed no DNA match. It was “more disappointment for Kerry and her family. However, they remain strong and resolute in their search for Ben, and there are other leads currently being looked into which keeps their hopes alive.”

Ben went missing from the Greek island of Kos 22 years ago.
