Summary
In 1991 Kerry and her son Ben followed Kerry's parents to live on the Greek island of Kos. On July 24, Kerry was at work in a restaurant when her mum Christine arrived crying uncontrollably. 21-month-old Ben had been playing outside their house, and then disappeared. Someone had taken Ben. In her heartbreaking memoir, Kerry describes -- along with the initial agony of being suspected by the police, which meant the closure of the airport and ferry terminals were delayed, and early sightings that raised their hopes, and hoaxes which dashed them completely -- the unbearable pain of knowing her baby boy was alone somewhere without his mum. Back in the UK, the long years of waiting and hoping have been difficult on all the family. After having another child, a daughter Leigh-anna, Kerry and her husband split up. Kerry's parents struggled with difficult feelings of guilt. And Kerry has had to raise a daughter while continuing the search for her son -- Kerry and her family have followed up each of over 300 leads. In 2011 they had a breakthrough when South Yorkshire Police agreed to work with the Greek authorities to reopen the case, and social media campaigns have brought support from millions, including Tom Cruise and Kym Marsh. The chance that Ben will read about himself and come home becomes more real every day
