Murder arrest over missing April

* Missing - April Jones.

As there is great interest in this case in Llangollen, we are bringing you the latest update:  

The man held by police for the last three days in connection with the diappearance of five-year-old April Jones has this morning (Friday) been arrested on suspicion of her murder.

In a statement he gave at a press conference Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan, of Dyfed Powys Police, said: “Mark Bridger has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of April Jones.

“He remains in custody at Aberystwyth Police Station where he continues to be questioned.

“The arrest does not detract from our efforts to find April and we remain committed to finding her.

“Her family has been informed of this development and as you would expect they continue to be supported by a family liaison officer.

“While this is a significant development in the investigation, I once again appeal to the public for information which may help us find April.

“We are looking to trace the movements of Mark Bridger between 6.30pm on Monday and 3.30pm on Tuesday and any sightings of him between these times.

“We also need information regarding the movements of the blue Land Rover Discovery registration L503 MEP between these times.”

At the same press conference, Superintendent Ian John said: “You have heard about a significant development in this investigation which has an impact on our search for April.

“We want to acknowledge and are extremely grateful for the efforts of the community volunteers who have supported the professional searchers in trying to locate her.

“They have been a vital part of our team throughout this search operation. Quite frankly, their commitment has been an inspiration to us all.

“The dynamics of the search have now changed and due to the passage of time and the developments within the investigation it is no longer appropriate for us to expect untrained members of the public to continue the search.

“So now we only require professional searchers to be involved in the ongoing search which continues in and around Machynlleth.”
