    UK - April Jones, 5, Machynlleth, Wales, 1 October 2012 #1 *M. Bridger guilty*

    This is why the UK should adopt the Amber Alert system

    April Jones was last seen playing on her bicycle with friends near her home in the town around 7:30 BST on Monday.

    She was seen getting into a light coloured van which then drove off.

    Claire Williams told us “At approx 7pm tonight 5 year old April Jones got into a white/cream/grey car in the Bryn y gog area of Machynlleth. She was with some friends of her age hence the colour confusion she hasn’t been seen since we have no registration plate or sightings at the moment”.

    It's a small town and looks to be quite isolated, right on the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park, which is hugely popular with walkers and cyclists.

    I hope so too, but I really don't like the sound of this

    This is terrible. It is quite rare in the UK for a child to be abducted but one child is one child too many. I hope she is found and I agree we should have an amber alert system in the UK it is shocking that we dont.

    Praying for April and her family.

    What a beautiful little girl. This does sound really bad. If it is a small town then they would know if it was a local they knew and had a good reason to pick her up. This sounds not good at all.

    Just hope she is found safe and sound very soon.

    The report says there is confusion over details as she was with children her own age. She's only five, and it was 7.30pm. I guess the best hope is it was a concerned or estranged relative taking her, as 5 years old is very young to be out at night, unsupervised.

    If not, even an Amber Alert would be of little use, with so few details to go on.

    It's very rare (stranger abduction, anyway). I hope she's found, the poor girl. This doesn't sound good.

    I wonder how long she was gone before the police were called ...

    looks like this town is way out in the middle of nowhere - no major thoroughways close by?

    It's less than two hours drive to the city of Birmingham, which is the second most populous city in the UK, after London. Access to the rest of the UK via the motorways starts there! I would think the police force for that area will be very small and widespread. With luck they will have arranged some road blocks using additional manpower from B'ham and Liverpool, to the North East.
