Cameron joins UK appeal for abducted girl


The British Prime Minister has appealed to the public for help in the search for a five-year-old girl who went missing in mid-Wales.

April Jones has cerebral palsy, the same disease that David Cameron’s late son Ivan suffered from.

She was last seen getting into a vehicle on Monday in the town of Machynlleth.

The prime minister said:
“My heart just goes out to April’s family. This is every family’s nightmare, clearly having this happen to you. The fact that she suffers from cerebral palsy, which is something I know a little bit about from my own children, only makes this worse. So my appeal would be to everyone: If you know anything, if you saw anything, heard anything, have any ideas you can bring forward – talk to the police. Help this family find their lovely child.”

Police have been given more time to question a suspect who is being detained. 46-year-old Mark Bridger has a blue land rover matching the vehicle April Jones was seen getting into.

His children were playing with her on the night she went missing. They live with his former partner and he often visits them.

Police have praised the response from the public, saying they have received more than 2,500 calls. They added that their search would continue overnight despite wet weather.
