    Confirmed: Missing Girl in Machynlleth
    The girl, called April Jones was apparently last seen being around a ‘white van’ around 7pm this evening. The picture being circulated is above.

    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”.

    News conference on five-year-old girl abducted in Powys

    April Jones: abduction triggers child rescue alert
    The abduction of April Jones triggered the first nationwide child rescue alert ever used in the UK as investigators weighed up the risk to the child in the hours after her disappearance.
    Late into Monday experts from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection unit, (Ceop) liaising with Dyfed-Powys police were engaged in the difficult decision of whether to initiate the high profile national alert to help in the hunt for the missing five-year-old.
    A tactic long used in America, the child rescue alert has never been used across the country like this before, partly because suspected stranger abductions are rare.

    April Jones: Suspect Mark Bridger 'gave her a ride in his Land Rover two days before kidnapping'
    April was a regular playmate of two of Mr Bridger's children who had been with her just hours before she was taken from near her home in Machynlleth, north Wales.
