April Jones. Search to end + Mark Bridger trial starts today 29/4/2013

Search for missing April Jones set to finally come to an end




Missing ... April vanished on October 1


By HARRY HAWKINS
Published: 27th March 2013








THE massive search for missing schoolgirl April Jones is finally being called off - six months after she disappeared.


The painstaking hunt for the five-year-old, described as “unprecedented” in British criminal history, will stop at the end of next month.



Search ... villagers joined in hunt for schoolgirl


April vanished as she played on her bike with friends near her home in Machynlleth, north Wales, on October 1 last year.

Seventeen specialist search teams have been scouring the surrounding countryside ever since.

Hundreds of officers have conducted finger-tip explorations of hills, rivers and gorges involving helicopters, dogs, and divers.

A Dyfed Powys Police spokeswoman said: “A massive search area of 60 kilometres square has been searched, with over 300 specific search areas.

“The terrain is extremely challenging. The mountains, gorges, streams and waterfalls mean extra care has to be taken and specialist safety equipment has to be worn.





'Taken' ... man accused of snatching April“The teams have worked through a detailed plan that was based on information from the investigation and UK best practice guidance.”


A team of specialist officers will be available from the end of April to respond to any new information received.

Cops previously made a commitment to search for the youngster until "all viable lines of enquiry were complete."

Local man Mark Bridger, 47, has been charged with murder, abduction and disposing of her body.

He is due to stand trial on April 29.

My heart goes out to her family.

I imagine his solicitor advised him not to answer the question ' What have you done with her body ?'

Solicitor must have ice water running through his veins when he knows April's parents & family are going through hell, but then that's what he's paid for, may come out in the court case. I feel so sorry for the parents that they haven't been able to give April a Christian burial, but as we know bodies can turn up years later.

I was amazed when I read the search was ending as this was the first time for months April's name had been mentioned in the media, no updates, photo's, nothing, but then maybe the family wanted privacy, not like others that we know.

April Jones search called off by police
Hunt for five-year-old schoolgirl last seen in Machynlleth in October draws to a close

The search for the missing schoolgirl April Jones has been officially called off, police say.
The five-year-old was last seen playing on her bike on Machynlleth's Bryn-y-Gog estate, where she lived, on the evening of 1 October last year.
Her disappearance sparked an outpouring of support for April's parents, with hundreds of people joining the search for their daughter and offering assistance.
On Monday Dyfed-Powys police announced that the exhaustive search operation had drawn to a close.
Less than a week after she vanished, detectives charged the 47-year-old local man Mark Bridger with child abduction, perverting the course of justice and murder. He is due to stand trial next week at Mold crown court.
Although officers had given up hope of finding the youngster alive, specialist teams continued to search the sprawling countryside close around her home town.
A Dyfed-Powys police spokesman said: "Since the beginning of October specialist officers from Dyfed-Powys police along with other forces from across the UK have been searching the area in and around Machynlleth for five-year-old April Jones.
"The search areas identified during the course of the investigation were completed on Friday 19 April.
"In addition, a reactive team of specialist officers are available to respond to any new information that is received."
Now they ask him the question ?
Or will Carter-Ruck say it is defamatory to suggest or imply he knows what he did with her body ?
What do you think, Kevin ?

Or as the Book of Common Prayer has it - almost ! !
Have mercy on him, miserable offender.

Sleep well, Kevin. Keep those thirty pieces of silver very safe.

Or in this case - thirty, times thirty, times thirty, times a lot more

Yes - in his way!
This bugger too is incapable of telling the truth ; he prefers to churn out pulp fiction, thinking people are donkeys who can't see through him. He's just spamming the tweeter with his half truth and lies.

April Jones case: Mark Bridger was 'sexually motivated'
30 April 2013 Last updated at 12:47

The actions of the man accused of
abducting and murdering five-year-old April Jones were sexually motivated, his
trial has heard.

Mark Bridger, 47, from Ceinws, Machynlleth, Powys, denies abducting and
murdering April, and intending to pervert the course of justice.

Prosecutor Elwen Evans QC said he had played a "cruel game" in pretending not
to know what he had done.

April went missing near her home in Machynlleth on 1 October.

Ms Evans said: "He has played a cruel game in pretending not to know what he
has done to her and with her. It is a game to try and save himself."

The court heard Mr Bridger's computer showed he had an interest in child sex
images and had photographs of local children, and had an interest in child
murder cases.

The jury were warned they will have to view some images.

Search terms Mr Bridger used on his computer included "naked young five year
old girls" and "nudism five-year-old".

He had images of the Soham murder victims Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman on
his computer, the court heard.

On the day April was abducted, he viewed a pornographic cartoon apparently
depicting rape.

Mr Bridger, wearing grey trousers, a short-sleeved blue shirt and tie and
flanked by two prison guards, stood and listened as each jury member swore their
oath.

Bridger in court on Monday
The prosecution's opening speech is expected to continue into Wednesday.

The jury will to go to Machynlleth on Thursday to visit various sites.

April's parents Coral and Paul Jones were seated in the front row of the
public gallery throughout the morning's proceedings, which included legal
argument and jury selection.

Both were wearing pink ribbons, which became the symbol of the search for
their missing daughter following her disappearance.

The trial could last until the middle of June.

I suppose they wanted to find the body or body parts if there was not enough evidence that it had been disposed of at his home. It is too gruesome to elaborate on.

What an utter evil piece of filth Bridger is. I hope they lock him up for the rest of his entire life.

Didn't they arrest him the next day ? He didn't have time to dispose of anything so there should be lots of bones/ blood, I would think ?

Shocking about the child porn on his computer and the excuse he gave about it being a guide to the development of his own daughter ???
