The toddler vanished on November 28 in Paderborn, West Germany, in 1981 when shopping with her Gosport-based mother Sharon.

Speaking to The News’ sister paper the Hartlepool Mail, Richie said returning to Germany for the first time since 2012 was painful. He said: ‘It was just walking back into a nightmare.’

Royal Military Police are re-investigating the disappearance.
