Specialist teams are searching land on the Wirral as part of an inquiry into the disappearance of Steven Preston in 1992.
April Jones murder trial adjourned
The trial of the man accused of killing the 5 year old was due to start on February 25th
47 year old Mark Bridger was arrested the day after the schoolgirl vanished while playing on her bike near her home in Machynlleth on October 1 last year.
The case has been adjourned on application of the defence "to make further inquiries''.
April's parents, Coral and Paul Jones, sat just yards away from the defendant as the case at Mold Crown court was discussed yesterday (25th February).
They both wore pink ribbons, which have come to symbolise the ongoing search for their daughter.
Bridger, wearing a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves and jeans, sat looking straight ahead in the dock, not making eye contact with the couple.
The disappearance of April, who had cerebral palsy, sparked a massive outpouring of support for her family, with hundreds of people joining the search.
The youngster's body has never been found despite a major operation led by Dyfed Powys Police.
Bridger, of Ceinws, is charged with abducting and murdering April, and of unlawfully disposing of and concealing her body with intent to pervert the course of justice.
He pleaded not guilty to the allegations on January 14.
A new trial date has been set for April 29.
