Missing April Jones: Police 'grateful' for public help

Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan of Dyfed-Powys Police made a statement following the suspected abduction of five-year-old April Jones from the Welsh town of Machynlleth.

April was playing with friends near her home but was seen getting into a grey or light coloured van at 19:00 BST on Monday.

She was last seen wearing a purple knee-length coat with a fur hood, white school polo top and black trousers.

Det Supt Reg Bevan said his team were "very grateful" for all the help from the local community and those searching for April - but said it must be done in a structured and co-ordinated manner.
