POLICE searching for April Jones have issued a picture of the 46-year-old man they have arrested on suspicion of her abduction.
Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan, from Dyfed Powys Police, said he was confirming Mark Bridger's identity to end speculation but stressed that he was just one of several lines of inquiry.
He appealed for witnesses who may have seen Mr Bridger between Monday evening when April disappeared, and yesterday afternoon when he was arrested, or his Land Rover Discovery 4x4 vehicle, registration number L503 MEP.
Five-year-old April was abducted from the Mid Wales town of Machynlleth at around 7pm on Monday.
