Fears grow for missing five-year-old girl

Llangollen may be over 50 miles away from Machynlleth but we are on a main road, so llanblogger believes it may be useful to carry the story of the five-year-old girl missing from the Powys town since yesterday (Monday) evening. 
Police say they are treating the disappearance of April Jones as a suspected abduction and are becoming increasingly concerned for her safety.

April was seen playing with friends near her home and then getting into a grey or light coloured van at 7.30pm.

Hundreds of local people have been helping in a search of streets, farmland and woodland through the night.

Det Ch Supt Simon Powell of Dyfed-Powys Police said officers were "becoming increasingly concerned for her safety".

Local people gathered at Machynlleth Leisure Centre on Monday evening to help look for the girl, as news of her disappearance spread on social network sites.

A crowd of people had also gathered in the town's main street to take part in the search, and posters of April have been put up.

Police have set up road blocks to check vehicles, while the street where April disappeared has been cordoned off.
Officers are appealing for anyone with information to contact them by calling 0300 2000 333.
