The town in mid Wales from where April Jones went missing last Monday

It’s been a week since the five-year-old April Jones went missing near her home in Machynlleth, mid-Wales, and there has been no sign of her despite frantic search by the rescue teams and police for the missing April. The main suspect, 46-year-old Mark Bridger, is due to appear in court in Aberystwyth today charged with misleading the course of justice.

Meanwhile, the mountain rescue teams will most likely hand over the search operation to specialist police search teams after failed efforts of scouring through 70 square kilometres of remote terrain. Mountain Rescue workers have contributed 9,250 man-hours to the search for April. Almost 100 policemen are doubling their efforts to find the missing April Jones.

The town of Machynlleth has united to pay tribute to the ongoing search operation for the missing April Jones. The procession wore pink ribbons to symbolise their hope that the missing April may be found soon, after a call from Coral Jones, 40, April’s mother, for people to wear ribbons of pink, April’s favourite colour.

Thousands of people participated in the march to express their solidarity. Roads along the route were closed off as the sombre gathering inched its way slowly to St Peter’s Church at the heart of the mid Wales market town. A service was held at St Peter’s Church in Machynlleth to offer prayers for missing April Jones, which was attended by the community.

Last Monday, April, who has cerebral palsy, was playing out late on her bicycle, when she was allegedly abducted. Mark Bridger, a local man acquainted with the girl’s family, was originally arrested on suspicion of abduction on Tuesday afternoon. Despite the serious efforts of the police and community, April Jones remains missing one week after her mysterious disappearance.
