Moors mother resumes hunt

The mother of a 12-year-old victim of the Moors Murderers said she hopes her son's body will be found while Ian Brady is still alive, because that would "kill" him.

Keith Bennett was snatched by Brady and his accomplice Myra Hindley in 1964 as he was making his way to his grandmother's house near Manchester.

A privately funded search for the youngster's grave is now under way on Saddleworth Moor, and his mother, Winnie Johnson (76) said she hopes to find her son and bury him.

"That's all I want out of life now because I want him found before I die, and before Brady dies, and that will kill Brady."
