Missing girl April Jones, five, who police believe was abducted on Monday night from near her home in Machynlleth, mid Wales, got into the drivers' side of a van which may have been a Land Rover or Ford Connect-type vehicle, police have said.
Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan said that it was "every family's worst nightmare to suffer a child go missing in this way".
Mr Bevan said there was nothing to suggest there was a struggle when April got into the van, adding that police had received "a significant number of pieces of information".
