As the search for missing 5 year old April Jones continues, it has emerged that the little girl from Mid Wales has cerebral palsy and will now be in need of her daily medication to control her pain, for her health problems.
April's grandparents Richard Moon, 69, and step-grandmother Jean Moon revealed she has the brain condition in an interview with The Daily Mail they said "She's been coping fine with it, she has a few problems, you can see from the pictures she has a few problems with her hands, but she is like a normal five-year-old."
As the search continues for missing 5 year old April Jones, the search teams have now been expanded with mountain rescue volunteers, dog squads, and boat and kayak teams taking part in the search operations in the surrounding river and hills.
Police are continuing the questioning of Mark Bridger, the 46-year-old man, arrested in connection with her disappearance. But Police have said that he was just one of the lines of inquiry. Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan who is leading the inquiry said,
"He has been interviewed twice. Clearly, our focus in those interviews, as it is in this whole inquiry, is to find April. That is primarily what we've been discussing with him. What I don't want to do is compromise the investigation or any chance of finding April, so unfortunately I can't divulge exactly what he's told us so far."
Police have asked anyone with information to contact a Child Rescue Alert Line on 0300 2000 333.
